The real name of soccer is "Association Football" and is generally referred to in most countries as just Football. Association football is the most popular football variant worldwide, and is widely considered to be the most popular sport in the world. The modern game was codified in England following the formation of The Football Association, whose 1863 "Laws of the Game" created the foundations for the way the sport is played today.
