It completely depends on your circle. I would call it soccer because I don't watch it at all and grew up on gaa and rugby. But I have friends that call it football.

You are right. I was brought up on Liverpool/Man Utd/Premier League and I always called it Football because that's what I always heard on TV and it just feels normal.

However, Soccer also feels normal because "Sacar" is our word in Irish for it.

Any people I know that like Rugby/GAA. If they say Football, I know it means Gaelic Football. I've heard either word be used all over for the past 40+ years, so there's no one or the other.
