Football was invented because college boy's all over wanted to play a sport similar to rugby and a little bit different from soccer so Walter Camp invented a game called "football" in the late 1880's in Quebec.

There had to be a sport that could capture spectators from Baseball and become the new national pastime.They wanted a game thet would be fun and would give a lot of exercise.And they wanted a sport that was diffucult, but if you try your hardest you'll suceed.
