Why Football is called as Soccer in U.S and other countries?

Football or Soccer is the world’s most popular sport. But the same sport has two different names and is called differently in different parts of the world

Why is it that the sport is called as “soccer,” in U.S, Canada and Australia and while the rest of the world calls it “football”? The game was invented by the British 200 years back. The word “soccer” comes from the use of the term “association football” in Britain during that time. Soccer was also one of the first names of what we now primarily know of as “Football”

Then why Brits began to part with the term, “soccer” and always refer it to “Football”. Listen to this podcast to know why Britain and most of the countries call it as “Football”, meanwhile, U.S and few other countries term it as “Soccer”


  1. Hi! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I came to give
    it a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will
    be tweeting this to my followers! Terrific blog and brilliant design and style.

  2. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts
    as long as I provide credit and sources back to your website?

    My blog is in the exact same area of interest as yours
    and my visitors would really benefit from some of
    the information you provide here. Please let me know if this ok
    with you. Thanks a lot!

  3. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard
    to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox. Exceptional Blog!

  4. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally
    educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for
    something regarding this.
