Have an opinion?
The name is "Association Football" (*)Notice: As-SOC-iation.That's where the word "soccer" comes from and what the English originally called soccer and that is the name that carried over to North America. However, in the UK, they dropped soccer and "association football" and just shortened it to "football".That transition never happened in North America because, by that time, there already was a different sport called "football" which is the game of American/Canadian football played in colleges, the NFL, and the CFL.(*) Notice that FIFA is a French acronym for:Fédération Internationale de Football AssociationTranslating that to English is:International Federation of Association Football.FIFA isn't "an association"; it's a federation.Thus, we have shown that soccer is "association football". "Football" is what is played in North America.
so it should be pronounced socher then?
I think the entire planet bar America (And Australia i think too?) Call it football.The only reason Americans call it soccer is because football is already taken by another sport, Ironically, The sport they call football, Involves barely using your feet, And it dosen't even use a ball.i.kym-cdn.com/.../8c1.jpg
Yeah, I never understood why Americans called that sport football. Makes absolutely no sense. I always call it Handegg because I refuse to call it Football
Jalkapallo, so a literal translation is football.
soccer or football. both names are legit. did you know soccer was the common term that came out of england until people didn't like its association and use with the English upper class
Like lol this sport has two names, but americans are like "nah... we are going to have a sport that has a name from a diferent unrelated sport." Like invent the second name to refer to that sport so that no one can mix it up.
It's soccer. in America football is tackle takedown football contact Sports
Wait, are you talking about handegg?
It's called a soccer ball so I'd assume the sport associated with it would be soccer.
Football... said the American. 😂

Americans tried to replace it, but failed.
Hehe. This is a trick question for Americans.
Fotboll in Swedish and football in English.
