There is no definitive information however, record show that one of the earliest forms of soccer in which players kicked a ball around on a small field has been traced as far back to 1004 B.C. in Japan.

A record of the development of soccer in England shows that Eton college had the earliest known rules of the game in 1815, I suppose that this somewhat implies that until then, the games were played in chaos. Standardized rules known as the Cambridge rules were adopted by England's major colleges at this time.


There are many forms of football some of which can be traced back hundreds of years. However, the history of the form of football known as Soccer are well documented. 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 exist.
