World Football Day

is celebrated annually on December 10


The holiday was established by the UN General Assembly.

Thanks to this day, all fans, amateurs and athletes can honor their favorite sport.

Such a team game as football has a rather interesting history.

The game with the ball existed in China as early as the III-II centuries BC.

The main goal was to hit the net, which was fixed on bamboo poles.

Similar options also existed among the Egyptians and Greeks.

However, England is considered the real homeland of football.

There is even documentary evidence dating back to 1170.

It describes young people gathering on the field to play ball.

The game became so popular that it posed a real problem for King Edward II.

In the 1300s, the country was preparing for war with Scotland, but the soldiers did not practice archery, but played football.

The king had no choice but to ban this game for a while.

Over time, football spread and became quite popular among representatives of the working class.

During the game, people not only rested, but also could communicate.

However, then the matches were not quite civilized.

The rules were unclear and there were no referees on the field, so fights often occurred.

In the 18th century, football became popular not only among the working class.

Students of higher educational institutions are starting to play it.

It was at Cambridge University in 1848 that the first rules were established.

It is interesting that some of them are still valid today.

In 1863, the first Football Association was created in England.
