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.

Professional soccer rules are specific to the type of professional soccer being played. For example, clearly indoor soccer is significantly different than outdoor soccer.

Most, if not all, professional soccer leagues subscribe to these basic rules.
