Variants of association football

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There are many variants of association football played around the world, these use widely differing rules and some have a more formal structure than others. Games such as indoor soccer were created to provide year-round play, others such as paralympic football were created to allow those with disabilities to compete. There are also motorsport variations of the game.

The sport of bandy is played with a stick and a small ball like field hockey and on ice like ice hockey, but the rules of the game in many ways resembles association football. It is sometimes called "winter football".

Some games, such as footballtennis, are not related to association football but use a football to produce a variant of another game.
