introduction
 Football refers to a number
 of sports that involve, to
 varying
 degrees, kicking a ball with
 the foot to score a goal. The
 most popular of these sports
 worldwide is association
 football, more commonly
 known as just "football" or
 "soccer".
Early history
 The Ancient Greeks and Romans are known to have played
  many ball games, some of which involved the use of the
  feet.
 Documented evidence of an activity resembling football
  can be found in the Chinese military manual Zhan Guo
  Ce compiled between the 3rd century and 1st century BC. It
  describes a practice known as cuju ( literally "kick
  ball"), which originally involved kicking a leather ball
  through a small hole in a piece of silk cloth which was fixed
  on bamboo canes and hung about 9 m above ground.
Establishment of modern codes
 A more detailed description of football is given in Francis
  Willughby's Book of Games, written in about
  1660. Willughby, who had studied at Bishop Vesey's Grammar
  School, Sutton Coldfield, is the first to describe goals and a
  distinct playing field: "a close that has a gate at either end. The
  gates are called Goals." His book includes a diagram illustrating a
  football field. He also mentions tactics ("leaving some of their
  best players to guard the goal"); scoring ("they that can strike the
  ball through their opponents' goal first win") and the way teams
  were selected ("the players being equally divided according to
  their strength and nimbleness"). He is the first to describe a
  "law" of football: "they must not strike [an opponent's leg]
  higher than the ball"
Pitch dimensions
Official disapproval and attempts
to ban football
 Between 1324 and 1667, football was banned in England
  alone by more than 30 royal and local laws. The need to
  repeatedly proclaim such laws demonstrated the
  difficulty in enforcing bans on popular games.
  King Edward IIwas so troubled by the unruliness of
  football in London that on April 13, 1314 he issued a
  proclamation banning it.
 The reasons for the ban by Edward III, on June
  12, 1349, were explicit: football and other recreations
  distracted the populace from practicing archery, which
  was necessary for war.
Present day codes and families
     Five-a-side football — played throughout the world under various rules including:
          Futsal — the FIFA-approved five-a-side indoor game
        Minivoetbal — the five-a-side indoor game played in East and West Flanders where it is
           hugely popular
        Papi fut — the five-a-side game played in outdoor basketball courts (built with goals) in
           Central America.
    Indoor soccer — the six-a-side indoor game, known in Latin America, where it is often played in
       open air venues, as fútbol rápido ("fast football")
    Masters Football — six-a-side played in Europe by mature professionals (35 years and older)
 Paralympic football — modified Football for athletes with a disability.[87] Includes:
    Football 5-a-side — for visually impaired athletes
    Football 7-a-side — for athletes with cerebral palsy
    Amputee football — for athletes with amputations
    Deaf football — for athletes with hearing impairments
    Electric wheelchair soccer
 Beach soccer — football played on sand, also known as beach football and sand soccer
 Street football — encompasses a number of informal varieties of football
Globalisation of association
football
 The need for a single body to oversee association football had
  become apparent by the beginning of the 20th century, with
  the increasing popularity of international fixtures. The English
  Football Association had chaired many discussions on setting
  up an international body, but was perceived as making no
  progress. It fell to associations from seven other European
  countries:
  France, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and
  Switzerland, to form an international association.
  The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA)
  was founded in Paris on May 21, 1904. Its first president
  was Robert Guérin. The French name and acronym has
  remained, even outside French-speaking countries.
Split in Rugby football
In Britain, by 1870, there were about 75 clubs playing
  variations of the Rugby school game. There were also
  "rugby" clubs in Ireland, Australia, Canada and New
  Zealand. However, there was no generally accepted set of
  rules for rugby until 1871, when 21 clubs from London
  came together to form theRugby Football Union (RFU).
  The first official RFU rules were adopted in June 1871.
  These rules allowed passing the ball. They also included
  the try, where touching the ball over the line allowed an
  attempt at goal, though drop-goals from marks and
  general play, and penalty conversions were still the main
  form of contest.
Domestic competitions
 The governing bodies in each country operate league systems in
  a domestic season, normally comprising several divisions, in which
  the teams gain points throughout the season depending on results.
  Teams are placed into tables, placing them in order according to
  points accrued. Most commonly, each team plays every other team
  in its league at home and away in each season, in around-robin
  tournament. At the end of a season, the top team is declared the
  champion. The top few teams may be promoted to a higher
  division, and one or more of the teams finishing at the bottom
  are relegated to a lower division.
 The five top European leagues – the Premier League (England),[69] La
  Liga (Spain), Serie A (Italy), the Bundesliga (Germany) and Ligue
  1 (France) – attract most of the world's best players and each of the
  leagues has a total wage cost in excess of £600 million/€763
  million/US$1.185 billion.
International competitions
 The major international competition in football is the World
  Cup, organised by FIFA. This competition takes place over a
  four-year period. More than 190 national teams compete in
  qualifying tournaments within the scope of continental
  confederations for a place in the finals.
  The finals tournament, which is held
 every four years, involves 32 national
 teams competing over a four-week
 period.[61] The most recent
 tournament, the 2010 FIFA World
 Cup, was held in South Africa from 11
 June to 11 July.
