FOOTBALL FOOTBALL. The game of American football as played today by high school, college, and professional teams grew out of rugby-style football which in the mid-1870s replaced a largely kicking game known as association football. Although initially played on village greens and on college fields, the first intercollegiate game took place on 6 November 1869 when Rutgers defeated Princeton 6–4 in a soccer-style game. Five years later, Montreal's McGill University playing at Harvard introduced rugby football, which would be rapidly adopted by eastern teams.

The birth date of football is thought to be November of 1869. Initially, football was comprised of two games: running and kicking. The two games merged together and the ball began to slightly stretch out in order to accommodate more types of uses.

Football for males began a long time ago and has continued to grow and develop because of the amount of backing and funding it has received over the years by different federations: the contemporary history of the world 's favourite game spans more than 100 years. It all began in 1863 in England, when rugby football and association football branched off on their different courses and the Football Association in England was formed - becoming the sport 's first governing body (FIFA 2018).

Despite this in 1921, the FA announced that football was unsuitable for women (Jones and Edwards 2013), and even after the success and popularity of women’s football during the First World War, the FA Council instructed its member clubs to stop any female players from using officially sanctioned Football League grounds (Williams and Woodhouse 1991; Williams 2003).

FOOTBALL is a beautiful game. The fortune of Fijian football is slowly moving towards the goal which was created by the Frenchman Christophe Gamel after taking up the coaching job of Fiji Football Association 's head coach.
