Football: the link of times

Football has its history since the 12th century, and the birthplace of the sport is England. In the 12th century soccer played on the streets and squares, and the number of teams was sometimes more than 100 people. At that time it was football without rules – it was possible to play and hands, and feet, it was possible to shoot down the player. As a result, there were mass carnage and fights.
All this could not go unnoticed by the authorities, they considered the game dangerous (not only physically, but also ideologically – under the guise of playing football began to gather often dissatisfied), so football tried to ban. And so it finally succeeded king Edward II in 1313, and those who still wanted to play threatened with fines, and later even the death penalty.

But in the XVI century, the prohibitions began to be removed, because the people still continued to play football and continue to defend the right to its existence. No bans could break people’s passion for football, and then the sport continued to develop successfully. In the early XX century, football was included in the program of the OI. In Russia football appeared already in 1887 the brothers Czarnocki, who had a mill in Moscow province. And having got accustomed, this sport began to develop actively.

The undoubted advantage of football as a sport is its availability for most people – it is enough to recruit a team (and not necessarily 11 people, as in big football), find a Playground and get a ball. It is no coincidence that in any yard of any city you will often meet children chasing the ball, and not playing, for example, volleyball.

The first showing of football on TV happened only in 1938, when the English channel BBC showed a match between the British and the Scots. And then there were no plasma screens in all walls, and there were only small black-and-white TVs, but even they gathered about themselves crowds of fans. And in Russia, the first broadcast of the match took place during the siege of Leningrad, and the report was transmitted to the front to inspire the soldiers.

Now football is a popularly loved sport. And each country lives and breathes football, national team or individual clubs. After such a long period of formation, football has become a means of bringing people of different Nations together, and many players have become literally idols for the majority of the population. Of course, in the football stands boiling passions, clashing opposing forces, and it sometimes results in sad and horrifying events.
