The word "soccer," which is believed to have originated in Britain some 200 years ago, comes from the official name of the sport, "association football."


"The rugby football game was shortened to 'rugger,' a term recognized in British English to the present day, and the association football game was, plausibly, shortened to 'soccer'"


Gradually, the term "soccer" gained popularity in the U.S. to distinguish the sport from American football. By the 1980s, the Brits began to part with the term, apparently, because it had become too "American."



So, England coins the term Soccer hundreds of years ago. Americans adopt that part of European culture and use the name. Then England gets mad and starts to rage at America for using the name they came up with.

Seems pretty legit.




Even tho Europe created the name. :D


Thats because technically bacon and ham could be the same


Apparently Soccer is a shortened word for Association Football. The er was a fad of Brittan at the time.


So, Soccer and Football are the same. EU just got salty and remains salty for some reason.
