Who invented the sport rugby?
Legend has it that Rugby was invented at Rugby School in the town of Rugby, Warwickshire, England in 1823 by William Webb Ellis. Whilst playing football he picked the ball up and ran with it.
This is a bit of a complicated question, based on nationality... If you are from the USA, football is a version of the British sport Rugby, invented at Rugby School (at Rugby.) If you are British, football has evolved over time from a medieval sport in which a pig's stomach was blown up and kicked around.
Rugby was invented in a scholl in the town of rugby. A group of boys were playing football and one of them decided to pick the ball up they then went on to invent some rules and it became a reconised sport. The person who picked up the ball is known to be called 'Webb Eliss' and there is know a rugby brand named after him.
