- The special replica jerseys were sent to members of the press to celebrate the popular Ted Lasso Apple TV+ show.
Apple TV+ show Ted Lasso has become something of a cult hit and has picked up awards for its first season. In fact, the show is so popular that Apple TV+ has been sending replica AFC Richmond jerseys out to members of the press. And now they're appearing on eBay.
The jerseys match those worn by the soccer players in the show and feature the name 'Lasso' on the back. You can see the shirts in tweets shared by people who were lucky enough to receive these things directly from Apple TV+.

Pretty sweet, right? A couple of these shirts have appeared on eBay already, with one person asking a massive $450. Another has 10 bids and is sat at $140 with mere hours left before the auction closes.
If all of that is a little rich for your blood, fear not. The word on the street is that official Ted Lasso merch is incoming – and before the show's second season lands.
That shizz is coming out before season 2. Wish it were sooner. Sorry. #TedLassoThat shizz is coming out before season 2. Wish it were sooner. Sorry. #TedLasso— Bill Lawrence (@VDOOZER) March 9, 2021March 9, 2021
Here's how Apple TV+ describes Ted Lasso – it should be more than enough to whet the appetite.
With the second season of Ted Lasso just around the corner, maybe it's time to treat yourself to a new TV for Apple TV? You do want to enjoy the fun in glorious 4K and HDR, don't you?
