Football team

A football team or a football club, in football (soccer), is the collective name given to a number of players who play together in a football game, be it Association football (soccer), American football, Australian rules football, Canadian football, Gaelic football, Rugby league, Rugby union, or other version of football. The term team refers to the players who begin the game, it is not the term given to other players who may take part in the match as replacements, nor players not selected for the match.

The number of players that take part in the sport simultaneously, thus forming the team are:

*Football - 11
**Futsal, Beach soccer, Five-a-side football - 5
*American football - 11
**Arena football - 8
*Canadian football - 12
*Rugby league - 13
*Rugby union - 15
**Rugby sevens - 7 (most often played under union rules, but also played under league rules)
*Gaelic football - 15
*Australian rules football - 18

Often used as an alternative phrase to "football club", the team can refer to an incorporated club that might have several individual teams in different divisions or leagues.
