Soccer became a sport around 1004 B.C.


Soccer became a sport in the 19th century when in 1963 the newly formed Football Association drafted a new code for football which were distinctly different than any other form of football being played at the time. Before this the word Soccer did not even exist. The man who wrote the 'Laws of the game' for 'Soccer' or 'Association football' was a man called Ebenezer Cobb Morley. Ebenezer along with other co-authors agreed the rules at a public house called the Freemasons Tavern in London on 26th October 1863. Morley became the Football Associations first secretary. He also founded the Barnes Football Club in 1962 which he captained against Richmond football club in the first ever soccer match. The game ended 0-0 but in a return game he scored the first ever goal. He died in 1924 and is buried at a Cemetery on Barnes Common not far from where he drafted the Laws of the game at 26 The Terrace, Barnes, London. A blue plaque commemorating his life's work was placed on the wall of this address by English Heritage in 2009 usa invented in
