Best Answer

When you say "football" I will assume you mean "soccer" since you are speaking the English language and in the home of the English language (England) the game that involves kicking a ball into two goals is called the correct term - football. Football is over 300 years old yet Baseball isn't even older than 200 years in any form so clearly football is older.

Baseball- There was a story about a man named Abner Doubleday who invented baseball in 1839. However this is no evidence supporting this claim. Some others say that baseball was invented in 1792 in England... played with wood for bats and cans for balls.

Football- NFL football is a descendant of Rugby football which was imported to the United States from Canada in 1874. After a few transformations it became what it is today. Professional football in the US dates back to at least 1892.

Based on loose information, I'm going to guess that baseball came first, then football.

No. The roots of soccer are very old. Baseball came after cricket, which is a fairly similar game.

Soccer I believe. Balls have been around forever. And just kicking one, it's simple. But a puck, that was made after.

The real name for Soccer is Football. You use your foot, to move the ball. Football was invented before American Football, the rules were written before American Football's rules. American Football shouldn't be called Football because the foot is barely used.

Whether you are referring to American Football or Association Football, the answer is no.
