The National Football Museum hosts a new exhibition that is likely to appeal to sporty types and indoor kids alike. Pitch to Pixel: The World of Football Gaming is a celebration of the long history of footy-orientated computer games. The immersive attraction will feature a host of retro games for visitors to play, including some arcade classics. In creating this exhibition, the NFM teamed up with two of the genre’s biggest brands: EA Sports and Sports Interactive. Visitors will be able to put themselves on the cover of these companies’ massively popular games: FIFA and Football Manager. You’ll also find unique game artwork, and an interactive game that takes foosball and puts a new spin on it (ha!). As ever, the museum will also have a ton of other fun stuff for fans of the beautiful game.

Fri 23 Oct 2015 – Sun 5 Jun 2016, National Football Museum, Urbis Building, Cathedral Gardens, Todd Street, Manchester, M4 3BG.  10am – 5pm, FREE entry,
