Best Answer

Soccer is called soccer in North America. Although it is often believed that every where else it's called football, there are other countries that call it soccer also, like Australia and New Zealand.


Pretty much most of the world. It's called "soccer" when there's a need to distinguish it from other types of football:

  • In the USA and Canada, where they have gridiron football
  • In Ireland, where they have Gaelic football
  • In Australia, where they have Australian rules football
  • To a lesser extent, in New Zealand, where rugby union is the national sport and is often referred to simply as "football."
