Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played between two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball. It is played by 250 million players in over 200 nations, making it the world's most popular sport. The game is played on a rectangular field with a goal at each end. The object of the game is to score by getting the ball into the opposing goal. It all began in 1863 in England. By the early 20th century, football had spread across Europe, but it was in need of international organization. A solution was found in 1904, when representatives from the football associations founded the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). Football appeared for the first time on the programme of the Games of the II Olympiad in Paris in 1900 and The FIFA World Cup was first held in 1930 in Uruguay.
