Best Answer

Because football is its original name, as the ball is kicked by the foot. It is called football around the vast majority of the world, it is only in America where 'American Football' is so popular it is called soccer. Soccer is sometimes used in Australia due to Australian Rules Football. Both American and Australian Rules football are variations of soccer (football) hence there names.
