The history of football begins in the 2nd and 3rd centuries before Christ in China during the Han dynasty. At that time, it is said that the community dribbled a leather ball and then kicked it into a small net. A similar game has also been played in Japan as Kemari. Meanwhile, in Italy, the game of kicking and dribbling is also gaining popularity

especially in the 16th century.

Modern football initially began to develop in England and was much-loved by its people. In several competitions held, this game caused a lot of violence and injuries during the game. This is due to the fact that there are no standard rules in football yet. Finally in 1365, King Edward III banned this sport from being played. In fact, King James I of Scotland also supported the ban.

In 1815, there was a rapid development which caused football to become famous in university and school circles. Modern football was reborn at the Freemasons Tavern in 1863 when eleven schools and clubs gathered to formulate standard rules for the game of football. During the meeting, there was a clear separation between rugby and football (soccer). In 1869, carrying the ball by hand began to be banned in football. During the 1800s, sports were brought and spread by British sailors, traders, and troops to all corners of the world.

In 1904, world football's highest association (FIFA) was formed and in the early 1900's, various football competitions had been held in various countries.
