Football in the UK and Europe is better known as soccer. The start of the game is uncertain, only that since the beginning of time man has probably found something to kick! Today it is played in 150 countries around the globe by 250 million players which makes it the world's most popular sport. The World Cup is the pinnacle of the sport, with a worldwide audience. But from very young ages boys and girls play football and progress into teams, leagues and then clubs. The modern version of football can be said to have begun at the Introduction of The Cambridge Rules which were written at Trinity College, Cambridge, at a meeting attended by representatives fom Eton, Harrow, Rugby, Winchester and Shrewsbury schools in the 1870's.
The game that is now played worlwide is based on these rules and are still relatively easy to understand. Two teams of eleven players play on a pitch that is roughly 100m by 70m. There is a goal at each end and a 'penalty area'. Each team tries to score goals Outfield players mostly use their feet to strike or pass the ball, but may also use their head or torso to do so instead. The team that scores the most goals by the end of the match wins. Goal keepers are allowed to use their hands to touch the ball within their own penalty area.
Most games end with goals scored, but it is quite rare for a team to score more than 5 or 6. Football is normally played on grass, but can be played on astroturf and indoors for a smaller 5 a side format. Such is the reach of football that you can find it played all over the world on any piece of ground. In it's simplest form a player can just get a ball and practice alone! The biggest trend more recently is the growth in the numbers of females playing the sport and therefore the raising of the standard and popularity.
