Many countries and cultures have historically played games similar to modern football, including Greece, China, Japan, Rome, Britain, many parts of Africa, and the Americas. Modern association football rules appear to have originated in England, starting as an effort to standardize the game played in schools.

Gridiron football (not futbol or soccer) was actually born in Canada by British soldiers against civilians in a game in Toronto on November 9, 1861. It has been modified since then and includes Canadian and American football.
