  1. 1. Football History <br />Tamim El Moatassem<br />8B<br />Mr. Salazar<br />
  2. 2. Where did Football Originate From?<br />Football originates from China, yes China believe it or not it was the first sign of what our game is today, and even more it was created around 200-300 BC and it was known as (Medieval Football).<br />
  3. 3. Who made the first organized set of rules for football? Why did they do this.<br />In 1848, Henry de Winton and John Charles Thring organized a meeting at Trinity College in Cambridge, with several representatives from other colleges being invited. They devised a set of soccer rules known as the "Cambridge Rules" and despite the fact that they haven't been found yet, it's believed that they played a major role in England's football history, as they are allegedly the base on which the Laws of the Game would later be constructed. He did this because the game started growing more and more popular in the public school system.<br />
  4. 4. how many countries play football as their national sport?<br />Football is a national sport in over 60 nations. to sum it regionally: South America Western Europe (all countries ranging form Norway down to Greece). Most people will argue that the majority of countries east of Germany (eastern Europe). South East Asia (Countries ranging from Indonesia to the Thailand and Cambodia are not particularly strong in football, but it is watched and followed religiously in this part of the world). Middle East (countries like the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq etc all play soccer as their national sport) African Nations: Almost all African nations excluding South Africa have football as their national game.<br />
  5. 5. Why do you think football became so popular around the world?<br />I think football is so popular world wide because its easy to play and you can play anywhere. All you need is a ball and mark out two goals, so many poor countries could play this game. Also in some cases football takes time to master so those who like to be challenged will want to play the sport. And football has many tricks for people to master so it’s more fun than just running back and forth.<br />
  6. 6. Do you think there are different ways of playing, or styles, of football in different areas of the world? <br />Of course some countries must have invented their own styles of football. For example in London the street performers do tricks in the middle of the street for money. And some countries may have their own rules to make the game more interesting, it’s bound to happen.<br />
