Worf and Mikel play soccer.

Soccer, also known as Football, is a team sport of human origin. The game was considered to be one of the most popular games on Earth, and spread to other worlds as humanity joined the interstellar community.

Soccer is played between two teams of 11 players each, on a rectangular grass field with a goal on each end. The object of the game is to maneuver the ball into the opposing team's goal, while preventing the opposing team from doing the same. With the exception of the goalkeepers, players are not allowed to use their hands or arms to maneuver the ball.

Professional soccer

Professional soccer enjoyed popularity throughout much of the world in the 20th century, and continued to attract fans even in the United States into the 2020s. (DS9 episode: "Past Tense, Part II")

Tragically, soccer also commonly seemed to spur violent behavior and rioting, even after the establishment of a United Earth. (TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky)

The World Cup was the championship tournament for soccer on Earth. The English football team qualified for the World Cup championships in 2152. (ENT episode: "Minefield")

By the 24th century, as soccer spread to other worlds, the Federation Cup became the championship competition. (SCE eBook: Many Splendors)

One of the most popular soccer players of the mid 24th century was Golanga. However, he sustained a knee injury in 2366, and had to receive a bio-implant replacement, which significantly impacted his play. (DS9 episode: "Paradise")

Belinda Gomez was a standout soccer player in the 2360s, often playing against rival team, the Stars. Her career also was ended by a knee injury. (SCE eBook: Many Splendors)

Non-professional play

Lee Kelso excelled at soccer while at Starfleet Academy, as well as in gliding and surfing. (TOS comic: "Who's Who in Star Trek 1")

As a 13 year old, Worf led one of the local youth soccer teams on Gault. While playing against another team, there was an accident in which Worf and another boy named Mikel had a collision, which led to fatal head injuries for Mikel. (DS9 episode: "Let He Who Is Without Sin...")

Ensign Sam Lavelle kept a soccer ball in his quarters aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG episode: "Lower Decks")

Soccer is a team sport played between two teams of eleven players, and is widely considered to be the most popular sport in the world. It is a football variant played on a rectangular grass or artificial turf field, with a goal at each of the short ends. The object of the game is to score by maneuvering the ball into the opposing goal. In general play, the goalkeepers are the only players allowed to use their hands or arms to propel the ball; the rest of the team usually use their feet to kick the ball into position, occasionally using their torso or head to intercept a ball in midair. The team that scores the most goals by the end of the match wins. If the score is tied at the end of the game, either a draw is declared or the game goes into extra time and/or a penalty shootout, depending on the format of the competition.

Trivia

  • Jacob Keyes played soccer as a boy. A memory of a past game was one of the ones he allowed the Infection Form to consume in order to protect military secrets.[1]

Football (also known as soccer) is an Earth team sport.

The object of the game is for one team to score more goals than the other team by kicking a ball into a net in the opposing team's area. Each team consists of eleven players, most of who cannot use their hands to advance the ball. Only the goal keeper can use his or her hands in defending the goal within a predefined area. The team gaining the highest amount of points within the allotted time frame wins the game.

NOTE: This article describes Football as it is usually played in Tibia. These rules and generalizations ARE NOT the same as "official" football rules.
Goal
The goal of the game is to have the most points at the end of the game.
Setup
A football pitch must be arranged, and "goals" must be established and agreed upon. This is usually done by arranging Parcels in the rectangular shape of a field. This is a common arrangement for a Football pitch (goals are indicated by the red squares). A football pitch may be any size and shape, but must be agreed upon by both teams.

Sometimes, teams will decide to NOT use a formal field, but will play through a town. In these games the goals are usually very far apart from eachother and there is no "out of bounds", but all other aspects of gameplay is the same.
There is also an underground black marble floor in the shape of a football pitch west of the Ab'Dendriel depot which can be used, but there is no room for many people to watch the game.
There are two teams, each with the same number of players (usually 2, 3, or 4 on each team).
One player from each team will usually be a goal keeper. The only job for the goal keeper, is to stand by the goal, and try to prevent the football from entering it.
Playing
Football is played by "throwing" the football across the field.
Every time the football lands in your goal, the opposing team scores one goal.
Winning
Before starting the game, both teams must decide on how and when to end the game.
Usually, the game is ended by a time-limit. The game will continue until the time has run out, then the team with the most goals wins.
Sometimes, teams will play to a specific number of goals. The first team to get this many goals, wins.
