Best Answer

Soccer (or Association Football) became recognized as a "Sport" under the Cambridge Rules of 1848. From there the rules were refined in 1857 in Sheffield England until they became the rules as we know them today. To be honest, the sport was developed well before then as the sport was used a training regimen by Chinese forces in 3000 BC and throughout history since. Many would claim it as the first sport ever played.

Soccer was started around 200 A.D. when cavemen wrapped up dirt and other objects in animal skin. I swear it's the truth! Soccer was officially made a sport in England, though, in the 1800's. I swear about this too! Hope this will help you!

Soccer was alledgedly started in England in 1853. The story of how it started is still unknown. Others would argue the story it started in England but English sailors went to Brazil and played a football match between them and a few people who were on the piece of land where they docked.After the match the sailors gave the ball to the people on the Island. PS.I am not English

Answer

Soccer is one form of football the history of which is well documented. I can state with absolute certainty that the 'Laws of the game' for 'Association football' also known as 'Soccer' were wrote by a man called Ebenezer C. Morley the first secretary of the newly formed Football Association in 1863. Before this year the word Soccer did not even exist.
