Some suggest that the history of soccer dates back as far as 2500BC, during the time, Greeks, Egyptians, Romans and Chinese all appear to have partaken in feet-based games involving a ball. The Roman's game was called ‘Harpastum’, the Ancient Greeks game was entitled ‘Episkyros’, and the Chinese played 'Tsu-Chu or 'kick ball as it translates.

How It Became Popular
Soccer began to evolve in modern Europe from the 9th century onwards and in England entire towns would kick a pig’s bladder from one landmark to another. The formation of 'football' began in the public and private schools of Britain at the beginning of the 16th century. It was a game in which the hands were used during periods of play and two barless goals were placed at each end, goalkeepers and tactics were introduced and high tackles were outlawed. The modern shape of soccer was being formed.

The History of Soccer
Rules of Play
One factor in soccer is field size, when you are playing on a rec. or travel team and you are under the age of 12 the field size will be smaller depending on age and level. When you are 13 years of age or older you will play on a full size field with 11 players on the field. As you may know you are not allowed to touch the ball with your hands unless you are the goalie. You are allowed to touch the ball with all parts of you body except the arm from the shoulder down to the finger tips.If you do touch it the other team will get to kick the ball from where you hit it with your arm or hand. One important rule is the offside rule. To be in an "offside position", a player must be on the opponent's half of the field & closer to the goal than the last defender besides the goalie. To be called offsides the player must be involved in "active play" by either: gaining an advantage by being in an offside position, interfering with play, or interfering with an opponent. Lastly, there are 2 colors of "cards" which the referee will hold up to indicate serious fouls or behavior which won't be tolerated. He carries these cards in his shirt pocket, so if he reaches for his pocket it's a bad sign for the player who committed the foul. A foul or card is given when a player kicks or attempts to kick an opponent, trips or attempts to trip an opponent or shoves or pushes them down in any harmful way.
