  • Ancient Soccer
  • England Adopts Soccer From the Romans
  • Go Away!
  • The Official Sport: Football
  • About 2000 years ago, during the Han Dynasty, Chinese soldiers played a training game called Tsu-Shu. Tsu-Shu resembled the sport of soccer, and the name meant to kick a stuffed leather ball with the foot.
  • New Rules are Introduced to Soccer
  • No hand-balls allowed!
  • Violent soccer players ran through city streets, placing the two goals on opposite ends of town. Soccer matches in the 1600's had no referee and no player limit, allowing games to get out of hand and very violent. Civilians would be afraid of the players and did not want them destroying their towns and homes.
  • Nations Compete To Be The Best
  • Soccer became an official sport in 1863, in England. The name for soccer in England is actually Football.
  • In the 1870's many rules were put in place for soccer. Freekicks were  awarded when the other team touches the ball with their hand, corner kicks, and an official referee was also added into the game.
  • Now, events such as the World Cup bring people who are fans of soccer together, allow them to be happy and support their country as they compete against other nations.
