Chapter 1 Football

1.1 What is football?
Football may refer to one of a number of team sports < wiki/Team_sport> which all involve, to varying degrees, kicking < wiki/Kick_%28football%29> a ball with the foot to score a goal < wiki/Goal_%28sport%29>. The most popular of these sports worldwide is association football < wiki/Association_football>, more commonly known as just "football" or "soccer". Unqualified, the word football < wiki/Football_%28word%29> applies to whichever form of football is the most popular in the regional context in which the word appears, including American football < wiki/American_football>, Australian rules football < wiki/Australian_rules_football>, Canadian football < wiki/Canadian_football>, Gaelic football < wiki/Gaelic_football>, rugby league < wiki/Rugby_league>, rugby union < wiki/Rugby_union> and other related games. These variations of football are known as football "codes".
Football as a game involving “kicking a ball” has been around for more than 100 years. Many of the previous games in the past were said to be played differently from the football people know today. A football-like game emerged in China in the 2nd or 3rd centuries wherein a leather ball was used for kicking into a small net made of bamboo. A similar game was also played in Japan by Kemaris. This Japanese version is not played competitively and the players just pass the ball to each other hoping that it will not touch the ground.
Today, football is a global sport governed by FIFA. Many countries around the world have their own leagues and football clubs that follow international rules on the sport. Every 4 years, FIFA organizes the biggest prize in football which is the “World Cup”. This particular tournament is participated by many countries from all continents to gain football supremacy.

Chapter 2 History

2.1 History of football

The contemporary history of the worlds favourite game spans more than 100 years. It all began in 1863 in England, when rugby football and association football branched off on their different courses and the Football Association in England was formed - becoming the sports first governing body.
Both codes stemmed from a common root and both have a long and intricately branched ancestral tree. A search down the centuries reveals at least half a dozen different games, varying to different degrees, and to which the historical development of football has been traced back. Whether this can be justified in some instances is disputable. Nevertheless, the fact remains that people have enjoyed kicking a ball about for thousands of years and there is absolutely no reason to consider it an aberration of the more natural form of playing a ball with the hands.
On the contrary, apart from the need to employ the legs and feet in tough tussles for the ball, often without any laws for protection, it was recognised right at the outset that the art of controlling the ball with the feet was not easy and, as such, required no small measure of skill. The very earliest form of the game for which there is scientific evidence was an exercise from a military manual dating back to the second and third centuries BC in China.
This Han Dynasty forebear of football was called Tsu Chu and it consisted of kicking a leather ball filled with feathers and hair through an opening, measuring only 30-40cm in width, into a small net fixed onto long bamboo canes. According to one variation of this exercise, the player was not permitted to aim at his target unimpeded, but had to use his feet, chest, back and shoulders while trying to withstand the attacks of his opponents. Use of the hands was not permitted.

Another form of the game, also originating from the Far East, was the Japanese Kemari, which began some 500-600 years later and is still played today. This is a sport lacking the competitive element of Tsu Chu with no struggle for possession involved. Standing in a circle, the players had to pass the ball to each other, in a relatively small space, trying not to let it touch the ground.
The Greek Episkyros - of which few concrete details survive - was much livelier, as was the Roman Harpastum. The latter was played out with a smaller ball by two teams on a rectangular field marked by boundary lines and a centre line. The objective was to get the ball over the oppositions boundary lines and as players passed it between themselves, trickery was the order of the day. The game remained popular for 700-800 years, but, although the Romans took it to Britain with them, the use of feet was so small as to scarcely be of consequence.
The Middle Ages < wiki/Middle_Ages> saw a huge rise in popularity of annual Shrovetide football < wiki/Shrovetide_football> matches throughout Europe, particularly in England. The game played in England at this time may have arrived with the Roman occupation < wiki/Roman_Britain>, but the only pre-Norman reference is to boys playing "ball games" in the 9th century Historia Brittonum < wiki/Historia_Brittonum>. Reports of a game played in Brittany,Normandy < wiki/Normandy>, and Picardy < wiki/Picardy>, known as La Soule < wiki/La_Soule> or Choule, suggest that some of these football games could hav........
