The answer to the question “when was soccer invented” isn’t as easy to answer as you might think. Sure, the modern version of the game was standardized by the English in the 19th century, as they created the first rules for the game of soccer (the Laws of the Game in 1863), the first national team and the first Football Association, a governing body for English soccer that will soon be copied by many other nations. However, early versions of the game can be traced back to ancient times, with the Chinese playing a rather blunt kicking game back in the second century BC, or with Mesoamerican cultures practicing a game that was a combination of soccer and basketball.
