England is considered to be the birthplace of football, where it originated in the middle of the nineteenth century. But this is not true. They kicked the ball since time immemorial. There is a well-known complaint from King Edward II of England, where in 1314 he complained about the London riots, which were caused by the fact that people were too violent, attending football games - those who are now called "ultras" or simply fans.
Also, football has become over the throat and the holy clergy. And the reason was that the parishioners stopped honoring as previously holy Sunday because of the games.
There are ancient records that say that males who played football were imposed huge financial fines while preaching in the church's clubhouses.
