    Earliest football rulebook sells for almost £900,000

    Article

    Sorry if I missed a thread already discussing this bit of news.

    The 11 rules say the two opposing sides must wear red or dark blue flannel caps, allow pushing and catching of the ball, but “holding” was forbidden."
    Looks like the Derby della Madonnina was destined to be from the earliest days of the game...

Naismith was the undisputed inventor of the modern game, whereas there is much debate as to the beginnings of football. Sheffield may have been the oldest established club, but football (and its variations) date well back beyond 1859.
