The origin of football can be traced back to the ancient ball game Cuju in China. Cuju’s original name was "Tuju", and the word Cuju first appeared in Historical Records Biography of Bian Que Canggong, while Cuju was called the ancient football in China. Before the Middle Ages in Europe, the Greeks and Romans began to play a football game. On a rectangular court, the Greeks and Romans put the ball on the white line in the middle and kicked it to the other court with their feet. At that time, it was called "Haba storm". In the early 19th century, football became popular in Europe at that time, especially in Britain and some Latin American countries, but the rules of football at that time were varied.
Modern football originated in England. On October 26th, 1863, several football fans got together at Fremason Hotel in Queen’s Street, London, England, and discussed and established the English Football Association, which was the first football association established in the history of world football. Its establishment marked the birth of modern football. After that, people called October 26th, 1863 "Modern Football Day".
