THE HISTORY OF FOOTBALL

HOW OLD IS FOOTBALL?
It’s very, very old! In fact, the first forms of football came from 1004 B.C.
in Japan, where players kicked a ball around in a small field. About 50 B.C,
the Chinese played a game kicking a leather ball filled with air. Later on, the
Romans played something similar to our present football in the early Olympic
Games but there are not many written records about it.
