Football, it has made its way into just about every school, workplace and family home there is going. With an estimated 3.5 billion fans worldwide, this is arguably the biggest sport on the planet. History shows that it all began in 5000 B.C. China. Where military forces played the game named ‘Tsu Chu’. This involved kicking leather ball into a small hole without the use of your hands. Variations of the game emerged in Japan, Greece and Egypt, before being popularised in Britain. The British origins of the game were more violent as the severed head of the Danish prince was used as a ball after the war in 700 A.D.
Fun fact: The game was made illegal in 1424 and didn’t become legal again until 1605.
