Ted Lasso season 3: Will AFC Richmond win the Premier League?



Apple TV+’s award-winning series Ted Lasso recently premiered and many fans are curious to know about the fate of the fictional club at the heart of the drama. Season three saw the club’s fortunes continuing to change with hopes they could make their way up the league table. Although fans will have to continue to watch the series to see if AFC Richmond will be the winning team, bookmakers OLBG have given the team odds of 5/6 to be crowned in glory come the final episode.

This means they have a 54 percent chance of winning the Premier League, according to the stats.

Their rivals in the show West Ham, also have odds of 5/6 to win the league in the third season, which suggests it’s going to be a close race to see who will be victorious between the two.

Jake Ashton, an Entertainment Betting Specialist at OLBG, said: “AFC Richmond got relegated at the end of the first season, but were promoted back to the Premier League at the end of the second, and along the way, Ted Lasso vowed he would win the ‘whole thing’.

“However, following Nate Shelley’s departure from AFC Richmond at the end of season two to join rival club West Ham United, pressure will be mounting on Lasso’s team as they try to deal with the betrayal.”

The season three trailer gave hints all was not well for AFC Richmond with all the characters facing some tough challenges.

AFC Richmond’s coach Ted Lasso (played by Jason Sudeikis) was reeling from Nate Shelley’s (Nick Mohammed) decision to go over arch-nemesis Rupert Mannion (Anthony Head) and rival team West Ham United.

Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) made up the shortfall and worked alongside Coach Beard (Brendan Hunt) to get the team up to scratch and hold their own in the Premier League.

Ashton said about the teaser and what it could mean for AFC Richmond’s chance of success: “While the series three trailer shows things seem to be falling apart both on and off the pitch for the AFC Richmond, the club will be sure to give it their best shot anyway.

“The central theme of Ted Lasso is that people can always grow and improve if they put in the effort, so bookies are not counting out Team Lasso with odds at 5/6 they will win the Premier League this season.”

There have also been reports season three could be the final outing for the multi-Emmy Award-winning series.

Lead star Sudeikis seemed to confirm as much recently when he said the writers wanted to tell a three-season arc story.

The news is likely to come as a disappointment to some fans but appears to be a narrative decision made at the start of the series.

The American actor told Deadline: “This is the end of this story that we wanted to tell, that we were hoping to tell, that we loved to tell.”

He said it was “flattering” fans were clamouring for more and hoped viewers would understand why the show couldn’t go any further come the finale.

Sudeikis added: “But until that time comes, I will appreciate the curiosity beyond what we’ve come up with so far.”

This suggests, AFC Richmond may finally get the win audiences have been hoping for and ultimately it would be a satisfying way for the series to end with the underdogs coming out on top.
