The location and time of the first soccer game is debated. There is currently no known record of the first soccer match played anything said on this matter would be pure speculation. It may be compareable to a pick-up game.


Football in general can be traced by over 900 years to Medieval Shrovetide football. However, the 'Laws of the game' for Assosiation football (Soccer) were coded by the Football Association in 1863. The first ever soccer match was played on Barnes common at Mortlake, London on 19th December 1863 between Barnes football club and Richmond football club. The Barnes club was captained by E.C. Morley who founded the Barnes club and wrote the 'Laws of the Game' for and behalf of the Football Association. The purpose of the game was to test the new code. The game ended 0-0
