Best Answer

The original purpose of 'Soccer' or 'Association Football' was to standardise football games played in the UK. Soccer is one of a family of football games which evolved from medieval foot ball games played in Europe. The rules of these games varied from one place to another. The fledgling Football Association set up in London England in 1863 was one of a number of groups who attempted to standardise these varying rules. Ultimately the FA failed partly due to some of the founder football clubs not agreeing on the rules and leaving the FA. One of these clubs, Blackheath FC, went on to help form the Rugby Football Union in 1871. Around the same time, in the second half of the 19th Centaury, other forms of football including American Football and Australian Rules football were evolving from the same early football games taken to America and Australia by emigrants.
