Association soccer is popularly known as football soccer and it is claimed to be the most popular sport around the world. Nevertheless, we can trace again a history of football football back in time and find the first sources citing golf ball games with similar characteristics that were played by ancient civilizations.

During the third century BC a soccer-like ball game was played in Egypt as a fertility rite, although the rules of the game were similar to the ones from modern handball, although China invented a leather ball game the century before also it was credited to Fu-Hi, who was not only an inventor but one of the 5 great Chinese rulers from the olden days.

The leather ball was made of several spherical roots by means of hard bristles that was coated with rawhide, but once again, the game was rumput sintetis lapangan played passing the basketball from hand to hand. The leather ball was later adopted in Indian and Persia where it became the most popular game. In the New World, the ancient pre-Hispanic civilizations were also known by their ball games that once again resembled what we known today as soccer soccer, although some tribes added their own rules and variants to those games.

Aztecs practiced a game called "tlachtli", that was probably the first real soccer game in the world because it incorporated steps just like those of the tennis and basketball, but the use of the hands was prohibited, thus the ball was only touched with the foot. Of course, the final of the game was different to the end of a soccer match today. Aztecs sacrificed the captain of the defeated team, something that many people want to do nowadays.

In Ancient Greece, Homer refers to a ball game called "esferomagia" or "esfaira" that was made of the ox bladder. Perhaps from the Spanish word "esf? rico" comes from "esfaira" talking about the modern sports ball. In the Roman Empire, soccer appears as a part of the game called "harpastum", which spherical ball was called "pila" or "pilotta" latter changing into "pelota", the actual translation for "ball".

Inside the Middle Ages, golf ball games were popular among different cultures and gentlemen; although none of them was called football sports despite the rules and action of the game continue resembling the real soccer game. It is said that Richard the Lionheart proposed to Islamic warlord Saladin settle their distinctions over the ownership of Jerusalem after a ball match game.

The Romans took the ball game to the Great Britain during the Ancient but it has to faced fluctuations during a couple of centuries including a short-term banning for the violent nature, but in the 19th century the ball game was adapted and played as "dribbling-game" in public school before it became a competition game among the list of major English universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, in which the first sports regulations were published in 1848, although Association Soccer and its modern rules were founded in 1863.
