Explanation:

[STC00825] There is evidence that early variants of soccer were played in England during the Roman era. The game continued to be popular during the Middle Ages and all the way up until the present day. A variant of the game was developed in the 19th century in which participants were permitted to make use of their hands. Legend has it that it was born out of an act of defiance by 16-year-old William Webb Ellis who, in 1823, was playing a game of soccer at Rugby School in the town of Rugby and decided to simply take the ball and run with it. This story is frequently promoted by the educational institution that the sport was named after, despite the fact that there is no evidence to support it. Despite this, the Rugby School had a significant role in the early growth of the game as well as the establishment of the regulations for a sport that is now widely played across the world.
