Jamaica's Update On Sports and Athletes

Football

Soccer is the name of the popular sports played around the world and includes soccer and rugby codes. These different variations of soccer are basically known as soccer codes. In general, soccer is played between two teams made up of 11 to 18 players. There are also some other variations of this sport where there are fewer players on each team.

There is a clearly defined area with a goal area at each end, in which both teams have to play and score goals. You can score a point, try, touchdown, or goal by moving the ball to the opposing team’s end of the field. The goals are scored by the players who put the ball into the goal area.

Players have different methods of moving the ball based on the code, such as kicking, carrying, throwing, and handing the ball to the other player. Players can only use their body to move the ball. There are also some soccer codes that include catching, kicking, tackling, and passing.
