Best Answer

Football was invented in 1863 in England. The football association was created to organise football in England and other countries were encouraged to have their own football associations.

No. Firstly, it's not called 'soccer football'.

Football is a popular game which originated from the inter-village sport of 'mob-football'.

Football was played at Rugby School, where the rules were adapted to form a new form of football known as "Rugby's Football".

Now known as Rugby Football or simply Rugby.

Therefore the same person did not invent both football and rugby.

ANSWER

No. Soccer and rugby actually evolved from the same type of game. Some clubs emphasized the feet, and other emphasized the hands. When attempts were made to standardize the rules, clubs who emphasized use of the feet founded the Football Association and went on to form what we know as soccer, or association football. Clubs who preferred ball-handling techniques formed the Rugby Football Union, named after Rugby School, where the handling game was popular.

Is soccer another name for football?

The official name for football is of course football.The football association is where the nicknames assoc or socca come from, as rugby union is often called rugger. These are nicknames and not the official names.YesAnswerSoccer is another name for Association football. The word Soccer started as a phonetically abbreviated vernacular word for Association football coined by English public school students who took the 'soc' from 'Association' and put an 'er' on the end. The same students called Rugby football 'Rugger' but this word has largely fallen out of use. Typically 'an Oxford University student who played Association football and Rugby football' would be described as "an Oxforder who plays Soccer and Rugger". This is why prior to 1863 the word Soccer did not exist.
