FIFA23 has been available for a few months now, but players recently discovered an interesting Easter egg in the form of commentary from Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. Reynolds and McElhenney are owners of Wrexham AFC. The Welsh team is a fairly small club, part of the National League. Despite his smaller character, Wrexham was added FIFA22 last year, where it teamed up with other small teams (which resulted in a nice video last year). Their presence transferred to FIFA23and it looks like Reynolds and McElhenney are really in the game this time!
A video shared on YouTube by Sandip2142 shows Wrexham AFC against Liverpool. Liverpool is in the Premier League and happens to be one of the biggest clubs in the world. When the two teams face each other in the game, commentary can be heard from Reynolds and McElhenney, joking about the fact that this is a game between “a big club and a really small club”, before revealing that the two are actually joking. about Liverpool being a smaller team from a “close-knit community”. The video can be found embedded below.
It will be interesting to see if Wrexham AFC makes it back into EA’s game this year! Electronic Arts had a very public split with the FIFA organization, and FIFA23 is the last collaboration between the two. Instead, EA Sports FC will be released this year, while FIFA 24 will be an entirely separate game developed by someone else. The whole situation is bound to confuse casual fans, and it’s impossible to say how much EA Sports FC will resemble the current game. For now, fans will just have to wait and see!
FIFA23 is now available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the game here.
