Football (also known as soccer in North America) is a sport that consists of two teams of eleven players playing against each other with a spherical ball.
The Colosseum of Rome, built around 70 AD, and other similar structures (Olympia in Greece, for example, was a stadium used for the purpose of olympic games around 776 BC), are the types of structures that have inspired the design of modern day stadiums.
