the rules are almost the same as rugby and soccer
Soccer does not have twenty rules. Soccer has 17 rules, called the Laws of the Game.
The first College Football game played in 1869 used the rules modified from the London Football Association. Over the next few years as the game gained popularity the colleges began to favor the rules of Rugby over the rules of soccer. The game as we know it today evolved from the game of rugby.
The International Football Association Board holds a meeting every year to determine approperate alterations to the rules of soccer (offically known as "The Laws of the Game").
The real name for Soccer is Football. You use your foot, to move the ball. Football was invented before American Football, the rules were written before American Football's rules. American Football shouldn't be called Football because the foot is barely used.
The Laws of the Game for Soccer (Association football) were written by a man called Ebenezer Morley for and behalf of the fledgling Football Association in England 1863. The game was based on Cambridge rules football playedat Public Schools.

Professional soccer rules are specific to the type of professional soccer being played. For example, clearly indoor soccer is significantly different than outdoor soccer.

Most, if not all, professional soccer leagues subscribe to these basic rules.

"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.
