There are three items of business. Money, money, and money. You'll need to join a professional league. The league will have to be approached and you will have to be voted in and pay a membership/sign-up fee. A really big one. You'll need a place to play, both a home field and the community support to construct it or renovate an existing one. That's going to take a lot of money. Much of it from the community, but a lot from you, too. The publicity, and the effort to lobby every concerned politico will be expensive on its own. And the community will have to have some serious guarantees from you (which translates into dollar liability). If you don't have a lot of cash, you won't get the support and backing of the local area. You'll need money to buy players who have the skills to compete in the professional league. And this will cost you a staggering sum. The cost to do all this might easily exceed what it would cost to simply buy an existing team.

Club soccer is "soccer" between clubs, or as they may be known in North America, franchises. Club soccer generally takes the form of domestic leagues - for example the Premier League, Major League Soccer, the Hyundai A-League, et cetera.

American football evolved out of rugby. It wasn't a combination of two games. -actually football was combined from soccer AND rugby.

Soccer is a form of football, and in many ways it is the original form. Modern American football developed from another form of the game, called Rugby after the English school where its rules were codified. Beyond using a leather ball, having eleven players to a side and being played on a lined, grassy field, all that soccer and American football now have in common is some terminology, such as "tackle," "off-side," "kick-off" and "full back."

Football was invented in 1863 in England. The football association was created to organise football in England and other countries were encouraged to have their own football associations.No. Firstly, it's not called 'soccer football'.Football is a popular game which originated from the inter-village sport of 'mob-football'.Football was played at Rugby School, where the rules were adapted to form a new form of football known as "Rugby's Football".Now known as Rugby Football or simply Rugby.Therefore the same person did not invent both football and rugby.ANSWERNo. Soccer and rugby actually evolved from the same type of game. Some clubs emphasized the feet, and other emphasized the hands. When attempts were made to standardize the rules, clubs who emphasized use of the feet founded the Football Association and went on to form what we know as soccer, or association football. Clubs who preferred ball-handling techniques formed the Rugby Football Union, named after Rugby School, where the handling game was popular.

soccer was originally called football in Europe and now here in the U.S we call it soccer for some weird reason which I am not sure about. I call it football if people start calling it football before I die in the U.S I will be a happy person.==============================================================The term football refers to a variety of games played using a ball and where one element of the game is to score goals by kicking the ball. For this reason many people assume that this is where the term originates.Another historical explanation is that football originally referred to a variety of games which were played on foot by peasants, as opposed to the sports of gentry and aristocrats, which often involved horse-riding. There is no conclusive evidence for either explanation.Worldwide, Association football, more commonly known as just "football" or "soccer", is the most popular of all football variants. However, the word football is applied to whichever form of football is the most popular in each particular part of the world. Hence, the word "football" is applied to Association football, American football, Australian rules football, Gaelic football, Rugby union football, Rugby league football and other related games. These variations of the game are known as "codes".In the U.K., Association football is the most popular form of the game and so is generally just called football, as Gridiron is the the most popular form in the U.S, it is generally referred to as football, and in order to differentiate the two forms of the game, Association football is generally known as soccer.The word soccer, which is by no means an American term, is derived from the shortening of the word Association to Assoc.
