Australian football league isnt a sport, its an organization. And im 99% sure soccer was "invented" before football
The AFL is the Australian Football League (a soccer league like the MLS in the US or UEFA in Europe)
I am a lover of all sports and can appreciate that in most parts of the world they call Soccer Football. It really annoys me however that Fifa the governing body of Soccer is trying to change Australian sporting culture buy trying to make Aussies say football, when referring to Soccer. I encourage all Australians to keep calling Soccer Soccer. How dare they try and change the Australian vocabulary. In Australia the term football is used to describe Australian Rules football and Rugby League, not Soccer.
No. In Australia, the term "Football" [colloquially "footy"], mainly refers to the Australian football game, also called, "Aussie Rules". Even in the two states that play much more rugby than Australian football, they do not reference soccer with the word 'football' - the 150+ year tradition within Australia has therefore long been to be speaking of either Australian football or one of the rugby codes - 'league or union' when football is mentioned. The only change that has occurred is that the major soccer / "association football" league in Australia has changed its own lead name from "Soccer" to include the word "Football", but certainly, neither the general populous, nor the culture as a whole refers to soccer by the term football. The chief governing body of Australian Football has long been named, "The Australian Football League". The true name of the soccer brand of football, by the way, is actually "Association Football".
Australian Football has more injuries than soccer, its only because soccer is played internationally, there is alot more ways for a person to get hurt in Australian football than soccer
Association football (Soccer), Five-a-side soccer, Gaelic football, Rugby League, Wheelchair rugby,Freestyle football, Rugby Union, American football, Canadian, Australian football, Subbuteo, Table football and quite a few more.
The Football league in the US is known as Major League Soccer or MLS for short.
The premier League is in the top of the English football league system. Its a proffessional league for assosiation football clubs. Or for some of us it is better known as soccer.
soccer is American for football
It the same but the Australian says soccer and the English way is Football
it will depend on where you come from but I think soccer is better because of the the exciting Barclays premier league and CHELSEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
yes!ANSWERDepends on where you live. Soccer is one of the world's many football codes, which include soccer (association football), American (gridiron) football, rugby football (both union and league varieties), Gaelic football, and Australian rules football.In places where soccer is the predominant code, the game is generally known simply as football. In places where another type of football is played, it's called soccer.

Rugby league is by far dominant in Australia. Union is the fourth most popular code of football, after Rugby League, Australian Rules and Soccer.

Football (soccer) is the national sport, but the national sport in terms of spectator popularity is almost certainly Cricket, followed by Australian Rules Football, and then Rugby League.
