The majority of the world calls it “football,” but a handful of countries – most notably the US, prefer the term “soccer.” But where did the word even come from?
The name actually came from England, and is nearly as old as the rules of the sport themselves. The earliest evidence of football comes from China in the third century BCE, a sport that they called cuju. Over the ages, many types of football spread throughout the world, eventually finding their place in England. It became especially popular with aristocratic English schoolboys, who decided that it was time to finally define the rules of the game.
On October 26, 1863, the leaders of a dozen English football clubs met at the Freemason’s Tavern in London to create a rulebook, and in doing so, formed the Football Association. However, there were still other versions of the game around, and a new group wrote a different rulebook in 1871 – one that allowed you to use your hands.
This new form of football was known as rubgy football – named after the Rugby School in England. The original rules, made by the Football Association, were then called association football. Both of those names are a mouthful, so rugby football became “rugger,” and association football became “soccer.”
These two new, official sports began spreading throughout the world, one more so than the other. By the time it found its way to the United States, they already had a sport called football, also known as gridiron football or American football. So the US, and others in similar situations, stuck to “soccer,” while the rest of the world still tends to prefer “football” to refer to the beautiful game.
