That depends on whether you are referring to Ice Hockey or Field Hockey. Soccer originated with the ancient game of Harpastum, played by the Roman Legions, while Ice Hockey was invented in Canada in the 19th Century. Field Hockey, on the other hand is known to have been played in Ancient Greece at the Olympic Games. There is a monument in the museum at Olympia which depicts two players with typical curved field hockey sticks in a face-off position and a ball between them.
The soccer ball. Rugby originated when, in a game of soccer William Webb-Ellis picked up the football and started to run with it, players chased him and the crowd loved it and so it started. Thank you William.
Field hockey variants have been played for thousands of years; ice hockey was only begun in the 18th century.
Soccer was known and played before Basketball. At first the game was said to involve elements of American Football, Soccer and Hockey but these were just a means to describing the new game to outsiders, so Soccer ball was used until the first Basketball was manufactured in 1894.
