Best Answer
Inventor of the FootballPeter Wilson invented the football.

The world's oldest football was found behind the bedroom ceiling of King Henry VIII of England's niece Mary who went on to became Mary Queen of Scots in 1542. The bedroom ceiling was closed off behind panels in the 1540's so it must have been lodged there before that date, possibly kicked up there by Mary herself. The family must have been keen on football. Her uncle Henry was known to play football and the earliest record of a pair of football boots was found in an inventory of his cloths when he died in 1547. The manufacturer of the ball is unknown.
