Who found football and how?

i would suggest Google or ask.com to get some more info! i got this info from Google, which brought me 2 wiki answers, to the question, who invented the game of football! Throughout history people have played sports involving ball and using hands, feet and sticks. Each local area had their own rules so there was no definitive global definition of any sport. In the 1300's the king of England Edward III banned football, hockey and handball. This shows a difference between sports using the feet, hands and sticks. So football was traditionally played using the feet and not the hands. In 1863 at Cambridge university a group of Englishmen formed the Football Association and invented football. After this event many other "versions" of football were invented. Rugby and Australian rules were the first. In north America rugby and football were both played, and a hybrid of these two sports was invented called Gridiron (American football) The first sport called football with global rules is football, other sports using the term football have words placed in front such as rugby, Gridiron (American) or Aussie Rules (Australian) or Gaelic (Irish) to differentiate them from football. There remains only one football accepted by FIFA and the Olympic committee.

What was the purpose when soccer originated?

The original purpose of 'Soccer' or 'Association Football' was to standardise football games played in the UK. Soccer is one of a family of football games which evolved from medieval foot ball games played in Europe. The rules of these games varied from one place to another. The fledgling Football Association set up in London England in 1863 was one of a number of groups who attempted to standardise these varying rules. Ultimately the FA failed partly due to some of the founder football clubs not agreeing on the rules and leaving the FA. One of these clubs, Blackheath FC, went on to help form the Rugby Football Union in 1871. Around the same time, in the second half of the 19th Centaury, other forms of football including American Football and Australian Rules football were evolving from the same early football games taken to America and Australia by emigrants.
