When did soccer originate?

Answer

Soccer is a popular sport in the Americas and Europe. It is difficult to know what year soccer did start. There is no official date. There is evidence that soccer was played in China during the second and third centuries BC. It was also played by Greeks, Romans, and the Japanese. In 1815, soccer became popular in Universities. The popularity was catapulted by Eton College, which had made a set of rules known as the Cambridge Rules. In October 1863, representatives from London clubs and schools met to establish rules for the sport. Thus, the Football Association was formed.
