Best Answer

Football is the official name for soccer. Soccer comes from association football. Only in the USA and Canada do they say soccer.

The global name for football is of course football. The global name for American football is gridiron. Gridiron is a code of handball and not football.

Football is a sport where players control the ball with their feet and only football does this.

Football has been played for many centuries but had no official rules.

The british created rules for football in 1848. After that many codes of handball arose including rugger and gridiron, none of which are codes of football.
