this is a matter of choice of course, soccer (also known as football to 75% of people around the world) is the most popular sport in the world today, as where "football" is very North American, many people wonder why it is called "football' in the USA and Canada when their feet are rarely used just to kick the ball once in a while!

depends on what you think personally i think football but basically its your opinion and you cant just ask someone else what they think because its meant to be your opinion.

Football demands far more skill than gridiron [steroid ball]. You have to be fit to play football and have technical abilities.

Depends on what you mean. If you are comparing American football with normal football (aka soccer), then undoubtedly, if you take a global perspective, the answer is normal football, or soccer.If you are wondering what to call the sport, then call it football. Do not call it soccer.

If you are looking to avoid getting hit, than soccer is better for you. If you are looking for a sport that revolves around physical conflict, than football is better for you. If you are looking just to watch a sport than perhaps you should try Ballet.



Football is sometimes called soccer after the football association. But the official name is football, so they are the same.

If you were referring to gridiron [American football] then this is a code of Rugby.


All forms of football (Association, Rugby Union, Rugby League, Gaelic, Aussie Rules) have the same basic idea - to take a ball into the opponents half and score goals (including touchdowns and tries). The team structure is basically the same (offense and defense) although adapted to deal with the varying rules of each code.

The important element of each code is TEAMWORK, the world's best quarterback is no use without a solid offense, the world's best striker no good without a midfield to back him up.

Both forms of the game require specialised players with different skills. Whether you find one form better than the other will depend on your own cultural background, skill level/ability and personal preference.
