they created soccer for the enjoyment of athletes.

Answer

The creators of soccer were trying to standardise the many forms of football played in the UK. The 'Laws of the game' for 'Association football' also known as 'Soccer' were wrote by a man called Ebenezer C. Morley on behalf of the newly formed Football Association in 1863. They are based on earlier rules known as the Cambridge Rules written at Cambridge University for their own football team and other schools to use in an attempt to standardise the various football rules played at different educational establishments. The word soccer is a phonetic abbreviation of the word 'Association' coined by English public school students who took the 'soc' from 'Association' and put an 'er' on the end. That is why prior to 1863 the word soccer did not exist. It is probably worth noting the same students called Rugby football 'Rugger' but this word fell out of use.
