Where Did Rugby Start?

Answer

Rugby originated in 1823 at English boy's schools when a young student named William Webb Ellis at Rugby School, picked the ball and ran with it toward the goal. During the late 1700 and early 1800s, a more civilised kind of mob football was a familiar pastime at English boy's schools. However, such games had loose rules, but it was in fact understood that running with the ball was right.
