Soccer was invented in England and became popular in Great Britain in the mid-19th century. No one really invented soccer. Soccer was invented in England called football in the 1830's I think the Aztecs invented soccer. No specific person invented soccer, the first people who played soccer were the Romans. Scotland invented soccer, Queens Park was where the first team put a goal bar on the top of the posts. Scotland was the first country to have a professional league starting in 1890 between Dumbarton and the Rangers. The Chinese actually invented soccer and it then spread to England. Later it was perfected which is the game we now know. The Chinese invented soccer, and the British and Romans refined the idea and made the rules easier to understand. South American's invented what we English call football. The English and Italians developed football over a couple of centuries and perfected it to the game we see today. Arguably soccer was invented in London in 1863 when men sat down to codify the games that they had enjoyed playing at their "public schools". An association called "The Football Association" was formed. The word "soccer" is short for "Association Football", as distinct from "Rugby Football", which was another sport codified by ex public schoolboys in the late 19th century. The British invented soccer The Chinese invented soccer in the second and third centuries. The English invented football. football was originally a game a whole village played with a pigs head and you had to get it to the other side of the village without being stopped by the other team, there was little rules at this time. Football then became more structuded when both the English and Scottish added rules, from the Scottish putting a crossbar on a net to form the goals, to some English fool adding the offside rule. The first official team was Sheffield FC which was established in 1857. In short the English invented football... Sambo. that is right sheffield f.c was the ever professional football team which means sheffield invented football. Soccer was invented all over the world
