The game was between Rutgers College (now Rutgers University) and The College of New Jersey (now Princeton University). It was on November 6, 1869. Rutgers college won 6-4.

"if you are talking about AFL football then Afl is older then soccer The first game if soccer was played in 1872, November 30th The first game of football was played in 1858, August 7th" WRONG.

So how can it be OLDER if it's based on Association Football? Foolish child.
