19 June - World Children's Football Day
Football was first played in Londons Newgate Prison. Here the prisoners whose hands had been mercilessly chopped off, invented a game where the ball could only be kicked with their feet. Built in the 12th century and demolished in 1904, the prison was extended and rebuilt many times, and remained in use for over 700 years, from 1188 to 1902.
The father of American football is Walter Camp, a famous player from Yale University who played a massive role in creating many new rules.
One of the most popular sports in the US is football, and children start playing it right from school, through college, and even at professional stadiums. The game involves a lot of passing, running, kicking, and rough collisions, but though it looks violent, it still is an excellent sport you will love!
