According to most historians, China was the inventor of the game of football, but according to different data, the Greek civilization and Roman civilization were playing football. Around the year 5 BCE, the Greeks and Romans played various games with the ball. They played some games with the Greek and Roman balls in various games. The Greek game Episkyros originated from the Roman game Harpastum. Information on this subject has been obtained from the writings of two authors of the time. A Greek playwright named Antiphanes tells about his various writing games. Only he is not alone. A Christian philosopher named Clement of Alexandria has also written about the games of that time in his various writings. Their writings provide some idea about this. In addition, a clearer idea of the subject comes from the writings of a Roman politician. The politician, named Cicero, said that during the game, a man was struck by a ball while he was shaving at a barbershop, and the ball with which it was played was filled with air, much like a balloon.
According to another, it is known that the game of football was born in the United Kingdom. The time was 12th century. However, this is the same view that football was introduced in China even further in the UK. Not only that, the popular Chinese game was football. However, the name of the game was ‘Chu Chiu’ at the time. This is more than two and a half thousand years ago. At that time, sports festivals were often organized in China. However, this sports festival cannot be called a direct football game. The name of the game is ‘To Soo Choo Pa’ in Chinese. In Chinese, ‘toe’ means kicking with legs and ‘chu pu’ means skin made of leather. As the name implies, the current match of football is quite similar. The ball was then made of leather and the inside was filled with cotton or hair. Chu Chiu became more popular during the Thang and Sung dynasties.
