The English invented Football in 1863 and writ out all the official rules for the game
Soccer is an alternative name for Association football. The rules for this code of football are known as the 'Laws of the game'. They were wrote in the 19th centaury for and behalf of the Football Association by a man called Ebenezer Cobb Morley in the year 1863. These rules were strongly influenced by the Cambridge rules first drafted in 1848. Other codes of football existed before this such as Rugby football 1823 but as the question is specifically in reference to Soccer earlier games are irrelevant to the question. A form of soccer was invented about 2500 BC.
Because football is its original name, as the ball is kicked by the foot. It is called football around the vast majority of the world, it is only in America where 'American Football' is so popular it is called soccer. Soccer is sometimes used in Australia due to Australian Rules Football. Both American and Australian Rules football are variations of soccer (football) hence there names.
Professional soccer rules are specific to the type of professional soccer being played. For example, clearly indoor soccer is significantly different than outdoor soccer. However, there are worldwide official soccer rules known as the "Laws of the Game." The rules are maintained by the International Football Association Board, and published by FIFA. Most, if not all, professional soccer leagues subscribe to these basic rules.
