Soccer is played on a field, using your feet, kicking a large ball. Hockey (Ice), is played on an ice rink, using a stick held in your hands, hitting a small, rubber puck. Soccer is played with 11 men. Hockey is played with 5. In soccer, you only get up to 3 subs. In hockey, you change up the players about every 30 seconds. In soccer, when you get a penalty, the other team gets a free kick, and the player who committed the foul could get a yellow card, or a red card (Which ejects you from the match). In hockey, a player who commits a penalty is placed in the penalty box, out of play for a certain period of time (Usually for 2 minutes, but sometimes for 4 or 5, depending on the level of foul). In soccer, a game is referred to as a match. In hockey, it is referred to as a game. In soccer, the field is referred to as a pitch. In hockey, it is referred to as a rink.
