The American's Soccer History
Lots of different types of soccer games have been around since Roman times, the United States was the first colony to start playing these games. When soccer first started in the United States, it was normally played by schoolboy and college teams. Depending on the school one played for, the rules were different. There wasn’t a set of rules for soccer players around the nation. By 1866, Beadle & Company of New York published a set of rules for the Soccer Association (Litterer).
Soccer was considered the Golden Era in the 1920’s. The American Soccer League was found and there were enough players that could play with the National Football League. During the season, the teams went through financial problems and split in half; the richer teams bought the poor teams. With everyone together, they formed the ASL (American Soccer League) (Litterer).
In South America, Soccer is one of the most important Sports played. Over the years soccer has become more important and a lot of professional soccer players are from South America. Teams were being formed in Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Chile. Argentine and Brazil are the biggest places in South America to play soccer ("South American Soccer").
