If you follow the American football sport, you are going to find that the rules are completely different and the game is played completely different from anywhere else as well. With the rules for this game you actually need to pick up the ball and run with it in order to score a point. But, the other games you will find that it is more of a kicking game and pushing the ball around with your feet to score points but getting the ball into a net. The American game requires a touchdown without a net.
In America they have a game called soccer but if you look at soccer in another country you are going to find that it is called Association football. This gives the football sport a whole new way to play the game and it has an entirely different set of rules as well. You are also going to find that your feet are used to score points with the ball by kicking it around on the field and not by caring it the way that it is done in the American game. You really have to be coordinated to play this game.
Two other games that are played are Rugby and Australian rules. Both of these are going to seem similar to soccer but they are considered a part of the football sport as well. Depending upon where you live in the world it may seem confusing to you but once you get the hang of the differences in the games, you are going to find that they all can be a lot of fun no matter you live. You may find yourself following other teams from around the world so when your team is not playing you will have another one that you can follow.
If you go back in time and take a look at history, you are going to find that this is a game that has been played in one form or another since before we were born. Of course it evolved into what we know it to be today but the football sport is something that man has been playing for centuries and will most likely still be playing for many more centuries to come. Naturally things are going to change on how the sport is played but it will never go out of style and all ages can have fun.
