I seriously asked myself this. I'm from argentina, and it's called football here, and mostly in everyone, but in the US.

The Brooklyn Bridge, right? :D
That is a good question though... And which came first? Soccer or American football?

Akiaa, Sep 23, 2010, 02 am

maybe because american football is something else and would be too similar to just 'football' o.o

Okay i think I got this

football/soccer was invented in Cambridge, Endgland in 1863, where it was first called 'Association football' to distinguish it from other forms of football (eg, rugby football as it was known as at the time). The word 'soccer' comes from 'association' (assoc), and the shortened form of the word was credited to Charles Wreford Brown, who also created 'brekkers' - breakfast; 'rugger' - rugby football. (strange englishmen)
Later on - In England - other sports (such as rugby) was lesser known as [sport] football, so association football became known as just 'football', whilst in America there was also American football, so the shortened form 'soccer' was kept.
Other countires just picked up what was best for them I guess.

Between soccer, the metric system, and the government not controlled by a king, it should b clear by now that, ever since the country began, America has always had 2 b DIFFERENT!

That's just how we roll.

Don't other countries call it futbol?

Actually, 'soccer' was the term used by the British guy who brought the sport to America :p

@Mr.Brickwithfeet
The metric system was just recently adopted by the British yet the states kept the Imperial system even though they started legislation to be one of the early adopters of the metric system.

So what happened?

It's called soccer in Australia too, to distinguish from Australian Rules Football or 'footy'! C: But there are a number of Aussies who use the English terminology.
