Ted Lasso Wiki

AFC Richmond is a fictional English professional association football club based in Richmond upon Thames, London. They currently compete in the Premier League, the first tier of the English football league system, following promotion in 2021.

Their home colours are blue shirts with a red vertical band, with white shorts and yellow socks. Their crest consists of a dark blue shield with a double red outline along with a silhouette of a greyhound and the clubs establishment year, below is a yellow ribbon containing the club's name


The club was founded and played their first match 1887. During World War I, their stadium, Nelson Road, was used as a field hospital.

The club was owned by Rupert Mannion when then spouse Rebecca Welton seized ownership of the club outright after their divorce breakup, when he cheated with several other women behind her back - often with the help of the club's Director of Football Operations, Leslie Higgins.

When Rebecca sacked the previous coach, George Cartrick, she began looking for a new coach for the club in the name of Ted Lasso. Alongside Ted, Coach Beard joined and together they aimed to turn the club's lackluster season around.

The real reason Rebecca hired Ted however was in the hopes the club would fail and drag her ex-husband's name down with it.
