The definitions of football differ in the United States and the United Kingdom. English football dates back to the medieval times described as one of the "kicking ball games" of England. At present, England hosts the first national team, the oldest national governing body (The Football Association), the oldest national league (The Football League) and the oldest national knockout competition (the FA Cup). Apart from this, England is home to 40,000 football clubs which is more than any other country. Football is primarily played by men, but in the recent years women's football is also on the rise.
