The answer below is also correct, however. I think that there are eleven players per team simply because of the vast space on the field and the vast areas of attack and defence that need to be taken care of and assigned a position for. .In sport, a friendly GK

From Goalkeeper up to the Striker.. there is 11 players on a football team as was written out by the English in 1863 who invented modern Football
