A game similar to soccer was first played in Boston, Massachusetts in 1862 - this team was the first to play a sport unofficially recognized, retroactively speaking, as soccer. The game itself could not have been soccer as this predates the formulation of official soccer rules in 1872. The first attempt to form a governing body in American soccer happened in 1884, the same year as the foundation of the American Cup, which remained, for several decades, the highest-level tournament in the sport in the United States.
Soccer originally came from England while a few teenagers were mucking around in a college football match.A game played in the streets in England in which players were allowed to use any part of the body, including feet and hands, to take the ball from one side to the other.
