Best Answer

Football is the official name for soccer. Soccer comes from the Football asssociation. Only in the USA and Canada do they say soccer.

The global name for football is of course football. The global name for American football is gridiron. Gridiron is a code of Rugby or handball and not football.

Football is a sport where players control the ball with their feet and only football does this.

Football has more participants in North America and gridiron has more spectators. Mainly because Americans prefer football but struggle with the technicalities and so they do better at gridiron which is a more basic sport.
