i think it is derived from the word association.
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.
The name comes from the original name AsSOCCiation Football, used to distinguish soccer from rugby football.
Soccer,football and rugby have the same roots in being a college sport in Britain as well as in the states.The word soccer comes from the word asSOCiation football and ruggER which was just a name for a rugbyplayer.
