Soccer (or European football) is dubbed as the world?s most popular sport, and is therefore one of the most popular holiday activities for kids. The earliest traces of soccer fields were in China at around 2BC, though more evidence suggests that early Romans and Greeks were the ones who actually played soccer.
The rules for modern day soccer were established in 1863 in England and they have changed very little since then. Want to help your kids become great football players? Enrol them in soccer clubs this summer!
