Football (also known as association football or soccer) is a team sport played between two teams of 11 players each.

It is the most popular kind of football and is widely considered to be the most popular sport in the world.

It is played on a rectangular grass field, or occasionally on artificial turf, with a goal at each end of the field.

The object of the game is to score by maneuvering the ball into the opposing goal; only the goalkeepers may use their hands or arms to propel the ball in general play.

The team that scores the most goals by the end of the match wins.

If the score is tied at the end of the game, either a draw is declared or the game goes into extended time, depending on the format of the competition.
