It depends on what you consider official. Soccer was played at universities in Europe as far back as 1815. Eton College established a specific set of rules. Soccer was played at a lot of colleges in the US in 1820, but there were no intercollegiate games, and the rules changed quite often. Soccer was first considered an official sport of the Olympics starting in 1904.
