How Soccer Got its Start. The majority of people agree that soccer can be traced back to England in the 1800’s. Numerous countries and cultures claim they created soccer long before this time, but we are talking about the modern sport including the rules and guidelines.

The story states that the people used his head as the ball when they played the game. There were even laws passed to prevent people from playing the game because it resulted in the death of that specific individual. Generally speaking modern soccer can be traced back to England in the 1800’s and was commonly played by wealthy individuals. Soccer then made its way to the common people where it finally gained popularity. Soccer was soon adopter by the rest of the world and over time became its most popular sport.
