Football Association

A Story by Kelly N

This really isn't a story, I don't know what to call this. But it's about soccer to americans.


Football Association

          Soccer is the world’s most popular sport. It is played by over 250 million people throughout 200 countries. Most places it is called “football”, including England. The laws of the game were created in England in 1863 and have stood still since then. Association football (soccer) is governed by FIFA, the organizers of the FIFA World Cup every four years. Soccer is nicknamed “the world game,” and “the beautiful game”. The main field rules are 11 players on each side of the field, and the standard goals are eighteen by five feet.
