History of Football
Football is the greatest and most popular sport in the world. It is an industry worth billions and is watched on every continent on the globe. It has a long and interesting history; it was first introduced in England as early as 1170 when youths went to the fields for a ‘game of ball’. Aspects of the game dates back to the second and third century BC in China. An exercise called Tsu’ Chu, in which opponents used a leather ball filled with feathers and hair, was played at that time. The aim was to get the ball into a small net fixed on to bamboo canes while also defending themselves from attacks. About 500 years later the Japanese invented a game called Kemari. A team tried to stop the ball from touching the ground. Like keepie-uppie(kick-ups), this game is still played today.
