I thought I would do some research and write some information about Football for those of you that do not know it. This will be very short and easy to follow.

Football is the game which is played on the rectangular grass. The width of the field has a min and max size, which FIFA indicates the following should be applied where possible.

For an adult pitch the min width should be 45.5m and max width should be 90m. The min length should be 90m and max length should be 120m.

On the pitch itself in front of each goal, there is a penalty area where either side can win a penalty for handball or if a foul is given. Marked out on all four corners of the pitch is a curve where a corner can be taken. In the centre of the pitch is where the kickoff is taken.

Football is played with a ball. In this game, the goalkeeper is the only player who is allowed to use their hands and arms to palm the ball and not get punished for it when the game is in action. The remaining members of the team are permitted to use their feet to kick the ball into any position on the field and use their hands to take a throw in when the ball has gone out of play.

The main purpose of the game is to score by the ball into the opposing goal. The team that have scored the most goals at the end of game are the winners.

Football game has been established with the team sport and it is played by two teams of 11 players. It is one of the most popular games in the world. In this game, the points are scored, either drawing the game which will give each team 1 point each or by winning the game which give the team 3 points.

The main object of the game is to score goals by just kicking the ball or heading the ball into the goal of the other team. There is also one referee and two assistant referees for every game.

The basic equipment for the players is required for health and safety reasons. The players have to wear football boots, shorts, socks, shirt and adequate shin guards. The goalkeeper must wear the clothing for the easily distinguishable from that worn by the other players and the match officials.

This is just a quick overview of football and hope it gives a novice a little information about it.
