Football - Introduction

Football is the world’s most popular sport. Its success is in its simplicity. With just some land, goal markers and a ball, it can be played just as easily by the working classes as aristocracy.

Since its inception, the game has evolved in different directions throughout the world. Its family includes rugby, Australian Rules, Gaelic and American football. The original game, currently played by an estimated 265 million people, is commonly referred to as ‘soccer’.

Football’s most significant recent development is the growth of the women’s game. FIFA held the first Women’s World Cup in 1991. Japan are the current world champions, beating the USA in Germany in 2011.
