The game was actual called football at that time in the Rugby School in Warwickshire UK.

It was a cross between soccer and murder ball where there were few rules and sides were as many as 100 players perside. The games was to get the ball to the opposing goal line and place it down - The ascoring team then "tried" to score a goal by kicking the ball beween 2 posts
