What’s the origin of the word ‘soccer’?

Everyone knows that soccer is football everywhere else in the world, but where did the word come from? It’s clearly not derived from “football.” According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, soccer was sometimes called association football to distinguish it from rugby football. The abbreviation “Assoc.” eventually transformed into “socca,” then “socker,” before “soccer” appeared in 1895, and it apparently stuck.

If you ask me, we should go back to “socca,” suckas!
