History of Footballhe history of the world's favoritegame goes back to more than 100 years. It all began in 1863 inEngland, when rugby football and association football branched off on their different courses andthe Football Association in England was formed becoming the sport's first governing body. Bothcodes stemmed from a common root and both have a long and intricately branched ancestral tree.A search down the centuries reveals at least half a dozen different games, varying todifferent degrees, and to which the historical development of football has been traced back.Nevertheless, the fact remains that people have enjoyed kicking a ball about for thousands ofyears and there is absolutely no reason to consider it an aberration of the more 'natural' form ofplaying a ball with the hands. On the contrary, apart from the need to employ the legs and feet intough tussles for the ball, often without any laws for protection, it was recognized right at theoutset that the art of controlling the ball with the feet was not easy and, as such, required nosmall measure of skill.The very earliest form of the game for which there is scientific evidence was an exercisefrom a military manual dating back to the second and third centuries BC in China. This HanDynasty forebear of football was called Tsu' Chu and it consisted of kicking a leather ball filledwith feathers and hair through an opening, measuring only 30-40cm in width, into a small netfixed onto long bamboo canes. According to one variation of this exercise, the player was notpermitted to aim at his target unimpeded, but had to use his feet, chest, back and shoulders whiletrying to withstand the attacks of his opponents. Use of the hands was not permitted. Standing ina circle, the players had to pass the ball to each other, in a relatively small space, trying not to letit touch the ground.The latter was played out with a smaller ball by two teams on a rectangular field marked byboundary lines and a center line. The objective was to get the ball over the opposition's boundarylines and as players passed it between themselves, trickery was the order of the day. The gameremained popular for the next 700-800 years, but, although the Romans took it to Britain withthem, the use of feet was so small as to scarcely be of consequence.
