Best Answer

The first American collegiate game of football was played in 1869 in New Brunswick, New Jersey by Rutgers College and Princeton University. Rutgers won this game. From that point on American football has become a billion dollar collegiate and professional sport. This not to be confused by the world's game of football which is called soccer in America.

What is older football or soccer?

"if you are talking about AFL football then Afl is older then soccer The first game if soccer was played in 1872, November 30th The first game of football was played in 1858, August 7th" WRONG. The dates are right, officially, but the actual game of Association Football (Soccer) is far older, the OFFICIAL rules were made during this period; and although the first official game of American Football was played "first", American Football is actually a VARIATION of Association Football AND Rugby Football. So how can it be OLDER if it's based on Association Football? Foolish child.
