soccer equipment Soccer is an alternate name for what nations outside the United States call football, a game played on a field approximately 110 yards long by 80 yards wide.  Two teams of 11 players try to control the ball using only their feet (with a few exceptions), and attempt to score goals on the opposing team.  It is probably the most popular team sport in the world, with the World Cup the most important prize.

The demand for soccer equipment continues to grow as more and more children and adults begin to play the sport.  Many leagues also exist, both amateur and professional.  Children's teams are also prevalent, with many soccer clubs sponsored by schools and towns on the local level.

Soccer players need shin guards and cleats to play safely and effectively; soccer goalies also use specialized knee pads and elbow pads.  Shin guards are the most important protective gear, although many players also use wrist guards to prevent against falling injuries that result from trying to strip or steal the ball.  Any cleat will do for soccer, although there are cleats made specifically for soccer, with higher support for the ankle.

You'll need more than cleats and guards if you plan on playing soccer, however.  Larger equipment pieces and game-day hardware like nets, cones and posts can be found at many of the same retailers where you'd find your team's personal equipment.
