A Look at Popular International Football Games and Their Rules
Association football, also known as football Association, is a common team game played between two parallel teams of eleven players each. It’s played every time around the globe by about 250 million players in more than 200 countries and possessions, making it the most popular international sport. There are various rules governing the game, which can be picked up from websites, or in most cases by sending a mail to the relevant association or league to request a copy of the rules. If you’re playing in a country that doesn’t have any professional football league then the F.A.C.
Another version of the game that’s widely played across different countries is rugby football. It differs from association football in that rugby is an open form game played with a ball, rather than a plastic ball. The game also differs in that there are no boundaries to the side of the field and a try is scored when a team has scored a touchdown through a goal kick or conversion. The rules are very similar to those of football, and you should contact the relevant authority in your country to find out the exact rules.
Association football can be played by individuals, teams and even sub-ages of the respective governing body. Youth football is the most common form of football played, and youth football is usually played between teams of about 12 people. A full match, or quarter, is played with three halves and overtime if needed. The refereeing of this game is separate from that of other football, and there are different colored uniforms for the ref, although the colors may change from year to year. Football can be played by playing either an “open” or “closed” game, where the ball cannot touch the ground before being put back into play.
