Best Answer

The word "football" was used early in the game's history, where the rules for different types of football had not been codified. Different codes - such as Rugby football - evolved from earlier variations on the same game.

The official name for the type of football that is now known as "soccer" in the US, Australia and Canada is "Association Football", because it is managed by the "Football Association" in England.

"soccer" comes from "Association".
