Football is a worldwide popular ball sport in which two teams of eleven players have to try to get the ball into the opponent’s goal. The ball may be played with any part of the body, except arms and hands (except on the throw-in). In practice, it is mainly played with the foot and with the head. The ball must also remain playable at all times and may not be clamped by, for example, lying on the ball or clamping it between the legs. These restrictions do not apply to the goalkeeper, also called goalkeeper, in his own penalty area.

In order to perform well on the grass field, which is usually played on, the players wear specially manufactured football boots.
It is generally believed that the modern form of football originated in the United Kingdom, perhaps in England. The oldest professional football club in the world, Notts County FC, was also founded here. Internationally, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) came into existence in 1904 and the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) in 1954, the latter of which organizes the matches for the Champions League and the Europa League.
The Premier League
The Premier League is the top English football competition. The league consists of twenty clubs that play a total of 38 matches between August and May. In addition to English clubs, Welsh clubs can also qualify for a place in the Premier League, but they must participate in the English football pyramid. There is a promotion and relegation scheme between the Premier League and the Football League.
Outside of England, the league is often referred to as the English Premier League (EPL).
