Pitch to Pixel: The World of Football Gaming

An immersive football gaming experience for all ages at the National Football Museum.

23 October 2015 - 05 June 2016

Pitch to Pixel: The World of Football Gaming is a must see (and play) for Football Managers, FIFA players and gamers of all age. Drop in and immerse in a playable history of football gaming.

The National Football Museum, EA Sports and Sports Interactive have created a new experience to guide visitors through the playable world of football computer games. See how retro games compare to the modern giants of the game, playing titles from the 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s, as well as this year's biggest new titles.

Discover how football gaming is now influencing the real sport, and learn about the dedication shown by football gamers worldwide. See the motion-capture suits worn by superstars Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero in the latest FIFA 16 adverts, as well as a new film showing behind the scenes at a players' scanning session.

Playful artworks offer a unique 'spin' on gaming, with a table football game that creates light and sound based on the play, and a 'headers' game that takes a photo at the moment of contact.

Visitors can even get themselves on the cover of their own game.

Free admission.
