Soccer was invented in England in the 1800s. The world's first professional soccer team, Sheffield FC, was founded on October 24, 1857

Soccer oringinally came from the Netherlands. There they called it foot ball. When they had introduced this to other countries we had already had our sport "football" so we had to come up with a new name for it.So.... if you enjoy soccer thank the people in the Netherlands. soccer was invented around mostly Europeand Asia
