After almost two years of begging, it finally looks like Nike is ready to give people what they want. On Monday morning we got a glimpse of what a kit for AFC Richmond could look like from Ted Lassowhich we can only assume will go on sale soon.
Whether you are someone who loves Ted Lasso, or hate it because people can’t stop talking about it – there’s no doubt that having more things to please people is good, and getting official AFC Richmond kits, it’s good. Even as someone who generally hates wearing shirts outside of a game, I have to say I would buy one.
The red and blue signature kit is complete with sponsorship from “Bantr”, the show’s fake dating site which (spoiler alert) led Rebecca to hook up with Sam Obisanya. The “Believe” wording on the front is a bit cheesy, and hopefully we won’t see it in the finished product – but otherwise it’s perfect.
Now the hardest part is deciding which player I will have. Sam is an obvious choice, because he’s a delight – but man, Danny Rojas or even Jamie Tartt, who really established himself as a wonderfully deep character in season two.
Honestly, my real dream is to see this transcend the show. Can you imagine anything better than hundreds of fans showing up to an actual West Ham United game in AFC Richmond kit to boo Nate (the traitorous coward)?
