People have been kicking balls around for thousands of years. However, it wasn’t until 1863 that official rules and regulations were set in place. Now, players were no longer allowed to use their hands, and a pitch with a goal at either end was introduced. To begin with, soccer balls were made from leather and filled with feathers making them incredibly heavy. Plus, the goals were only around 15 inches, or 40 centimeters, wide.
