Soccer is just not my business. You got just mine so far. 😁

Even my interest in football decreased close to zero to watch after I realized the uncontrolled money-machine behind it. I get to know most of it in the news.

This is a UK forum, and in the UK it's called football.

We know, and football is rugby in British everyday language. Should this be considered in the thread, are we so pedantic? the people around here understand it either way.

So you have never met an American then. American call football soccer in their everyday language and when they are talking about football it is rugby in fact.

ive met americans. not necessarily during sports chat though. but i was really discussing brits, who i've never heard say soccer. i was under the impression OP is british and was pointlessly asking which word we brits prefer. like a "mum or mom" thread..but if they're foreign nvm.

Spoiler:

That could be right! did not regard it in this way so far. Really tought he was asking about the preference of the different sports, not the using terms. As a foreigner, I call the game football.

Germany. Germans know both terms, but football is used most of all when talking to English-speakers.

By the way was you asking about the using terms or the different sports rugby and football?

Football. Because you know it’s a game, involving a ball. That you kick, with your foot...

Well if I'm with American friends I'll say soccer because they get confused between football and soccer, but with British friends I call it football.😂

I'm British and this is one of the dumbest comments I've seen. Rugby is absolutely nothing like the sport American Football. It is growing bigger everyday in the UK and I think you should watch a game first before commenting

Maybe you got me wrong, and I am sorry, if I hurt you with my statement. Have never said that rugby is like American football in terms of playing and it was never my intention. It was just about the terms.
