A football club is the name given to a group of players that play for their respective club.
The term football club is the most commonly used for a sports club which is an organised or incorporated body with a president, committee and a set of rules responsible for ensuring the continued playing existence of one or more teams which are selected for regular competition play (and which may participate in several different divisions or leagues). The oldest football clubs date back to the early 19th century. he words team and club are sometimes used interchangeably by supporters, although they typically refer to the team within the club playing in the highest division or competition.
English club Notts County, which was formed in 1862 can claim to be the world's oldest fully professional association football club. Sheffield United was actually formed before Notts County in 1857, and is recognised by both the FA and FIFA as the world's oldest club now playing association football. The club's rules influenced the FA including handball, free kicks, corners and throw ins; it did not adopt the Association's code in full until 1877.
