Evolution (1) Heading (1) History (1) Types (1)

Now coming to the history of this game. Basically there were some games played by ancient Greeks and Rome’s by their feet. Well if you are looking for a documentary proof regarding the evolution of this game then you have to check an activity of Chinese military manual Zhan Guo Ce known as cuju. The literal meaning of this activity is ball kicking. Two bamboo sticks were hanged up in the earth 9m above the ground and then ball was kicked and carried into it. Rules were standardized. Then with the passage of time this game flew to neighboring countries such as Japan where it was known as Kemari. A feathered ball was used in cuju games but in kemari an air filled ball was used and net was placed between the bamboo sticks bringing goal posts into consideration.
