Best Answer

i think it is derived from the word association.

Answer

The word Soccer started as a phonetically abbreviated vernacular word for 'Association football' coded by the 'Football Association' Est:1863 started by English public school students who took the 'soc' from 'Association' and put an 'er' on the end. The same students called Rugby football 'Rugger' but this word has largely fallen out of use. Typically 'an Oxford University student who played Association football and Rugby football' would be described as "an Oxforder who plays Soccer and Rugger". This is why before 1863 the word Soccer did not exist.
