Football has become the most played sport in earth as well as the most watched.

Football is a sport of technique and skill. It does not matter if you are small or are male or female as skill level is the ultimate decider of success.

In football the ball is always open and everyone has the chance to have a touch of the ball, defense can turn to attack in seconds.

The rules of football are easy to follow and can be taught in seconds. Thus allowing people to enjoy playing the game. Goals can be spectacular and give the scorer a feeling of real joy.

Football is a team sport and a less talented team can win if they work together. This makes football a tactical game, well as a skill based game.
