The word "Soccer"


Registered Member
Where, oh where did it come from???? I am English and have never understood that word. Can you "Socc" something and therefore be a "Soccer"? Or must you "Socc" the ball? :confused:


I'm serious
Considering the fact that the next 'soccer' world cup is held in SA (my home country), I think soccer is the appropriate name.

You say 'football', I say soccer. Where is the world cup?? Oh here. So guess we call it soccer then!!!!???

one day some Latin guy went USA and saw them playing a new game (American Football) and nobody is playing his football

"I want to play football" he asked
"you suck" they said
"I socc?, I am a soccer??" and there you go


No Custom Title Exists
Australia has to call it soccer because we already have a 'football' here which is obviously the Aussie Rules, I, being from Europe, have grown up to call it football and that's how it will continue.
