Sheffield FC – F.O.A.T.

In football, everybody keeps talking about the G.O.A.T.: the greatest of all time. But why is no one talking about the F.O.A.T.? The first of all time: Sheffield F.C. – the world’s first football club (founded in 1857) and the founding fathers of the first rules we still play by today.

Sheffield FC partnered up with EA Sports to officially welcome the video game title FIFA 22 as part of football, by writing down the unwritten rules of FIFA 22. Just like they did when founding the first football club of the world.
