      […] Football:  Battersea Park hosted the first ever football game played under F.A. rules on 9-Jan-1864.  The match was between two teams of the best footballers in their day – one organized by the F.A.’s Secretary, the other by its President.  Since next January will mark the 150th anniversary of football, and 2014 is a World Cup year, a reenactment match is planned for that date and the ball from the game will begin a global journey to Brazil, in the same way that the Olympic torch begins in Greece.
