Football, also known as soccer in some countries around the world is often lovingly referred to as ‘the beautiful game’, a quote attributed to one of the most famous football stars of all time, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, better known to the world by his nickname Pele. The game of football is the most popular sport in history and is played all over the world. In fact, when the Football World Cup rolls around every four years, it is the most watched event in the world and the entire event usually runs for about a month.

If you are new to online sports betting and football in particular, take a few moments to learn about this incredibly exciting and addictive global game. While the origins of the game may be disputed, with various ancient games played in Ancient Greece and Rome and as far afield as Ancient China, football (or soccer) as we know it today can be traced back to 1863. At this time two games emerged, both using the term ‘football’, with the one being ‘rugby football’ and the other ‘association football’. The two separated into what we now know today as rugby, played with an oval shaped ball and using both hands and feet, and football, played with a round shaped ball and with no hand use permitted (unless of course you happen to be the goalkeeper).
The game is played by two teams; each made up of eleven players (including a goalkeeper) and is usually played for a duration of ninety minutes. The game consists of two halves, each lasting for forty five minutes, with a half time interval, after which teams will swop sides of the football pitch to continue the second half. The purpose of the game of football is for each team to try and put the ball in the netted goal at the opposite end of the pitch. The team that scores the most goals is the winner, unless no team scores, in which case, depending on the rules of the specific competition, extra time (usually thirty minutes) is added. If neither team is able to score in this allotted extra time, the game goes down to a penalty shootout phase to determine the winner.
