The game of football or soccer is a team sport, which involves kicking a ball with the foot in an attempt to score a goal. The word football is applied to whichever form of football is the more popular in each particular part of the world, and is hence also variously applied to 'gridiron football', a name associated with American football and Canadian football; Australian rules football; Gaelic football; Rugby league; Rugby union; and other related games. These variations are known as 'codes'.The various codes of football share some elements in common. They are: two teams of usually between 11 and 18 players; a clearly defined area in which to play the game; scoring goals or points, by moving the ball to an opposing team's end of the field and either into a goal area, or over a line; goals or points resulting from players putting the ball between two goalposts; the goal or line being defended by the opposing team; players being required to move the ball depending on the code by kicking, carrying, or hand-passing the ball; and players using only their body to move the ball.In most codes, there are rules restricting the movement of players offside, and players scoring a goal must put the ball either under or over a crossbar between the goalposts. Other features common to several football codes include: points being mostly scored by players carrying the ball across the goal line; and players receiving a free kick after they take a mark or make a fair catch.
