Soccer or Football??

In the end, it all depends who you are talking to.

Originally, in Britain there were two codes: rugby football and association football (soccer).

In contemporary Britain “football” can be soccer or rugby but more commonly soccer.

In Europe, Africa, Asia and South America the word “football” refers to “association football”. Often described as the World Game.

In USA “football” is American football (National Football League — NFL). When using the word “soccer” everyone knows that you mean European football.

In Australia “football” or “footy” refers to Aussie rules football (Australian Football League — AFL). Rugby codes are called “football” too. “Soccer” again means the other football (A-League).
