    To begin with the balls are entirely different. A soccer ball is a sphere while a football is an ellipsoid. There are very few pauses in soccer. Soccer players wear little protective equipment compared to football players. There are no wholesale substitutions from offense to defense and back in soccer as there are in football. Points are scored one at a time in soccer. Many more countries play soccer than play football.

    There is much less equipment in soccer. soccer has 11 players on the field, no time outs (except for quarters or halves), & just laws of the game. the biggest difference is advantage play on law.

    In soccer you can't touch the ball but in football you can.

    Soccer players are very agile, quick, and very well conditioned since they must play long periods with no rest. Football players tend to be much more powerful and larger since they are playing a game based on sheer power. They are also well conditioned athletes but their conditioning is oriented toward a different outcome.

    no difference, man : ) If you come to Europe you will get surprised since they call football a game with 22 players Europeans got used to. Americans call this game soccer. While footbal is a game in which strong guys kick each other asses in order to get the ball over the line. This game is called American football in Europe. So, to sum it up. Football and soccer stand for the same game although footbal is European name while soccer is american one. Football and american football are also the same games although the former is American name while the latter is European one

    depends what football you are talking about smile it is called soccer in America, Australia and a few other countries. But if you go to Europe you will see the name of the game is Football! But there are many sports called football nowadays it seems. There is American Football, Australian Football, Rugby League (Which is called football in Australia), Association Football (Soccer) and Gaelic Football.
