The first major exhibition on football gaming is to open at the National Football Museum in Manchester later this month.

Pitch to Pixel: The World of Football Gaming will explore how the line between simulation and reality has become increasingly blurred.

The "participatory and provocative" exhibition will feature a range of artworks and unique objects alongside interactive gaming experiences and a range of playable classic arcade games.

NFM has partnered with two major players in the football gaming world - EA SPORTS and Sports Interactive - to provide expertise for the exhibition, with support from Arts Council England.

The exhibition opens on October 23.
