The first round of FIFA Interactive World Cup '12 qualifiers will take place at Sony's PlayStation Access event in Manchester from tomorrow until Saturday.
FIFA IWC qualifying matches take place every day, with successful players securing a place in the UK final.
Gamers also get a chance to try a raft of upcoming PlayStation 3 titles, including Uncharted 3, Battlefield 3, Assassin's Creed: Revelations and Batman: Arkham City - just in case you missed them at Eurogamer Expo 2011.
PS Access runs from 6-8th October at Manchester's Hope Mill.
Doors are open 6-10pm each day, with an extra Saturday session running from midday until 4pm.
Demos of GoldenEye 007 Reloaded, Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One, Starhawk, Tekken: Hybrid and Dark Souls are also on offer, as well as a DJ set from Maximo Park keyboard player Lukas Wooller on Friday and Saturday night.
