Cult Video Game Essentials: Match Day

Match Day was a football computer game, published by Ocean Software in 1984. It was initially only available on the ZX Spectrum and then later released on the Amstrad CPC, BBC Micro, & Commodore 64 systems. It was the first game of what was to become the Match Day series (even incorporating the Match of the Day tv show theme).

This video game was the first one where large moving footballers characters could dribble, throw-in, take corners, etc. on ZX Spectrum. The game had 8 teams that the player could choose, such as Ritman Rovers, Clarke PR and Ocean United. Players could choose to rename the teams and redefine the team colours.
