About Cambridge Rules
What began as a simple set of rules for a game of football played on a patch of ground in Cambridge, has grown into a worldwide phenomena embraced by diverse cultures around the world.

One large stone cut into nine, engraved with the laws of the game in different languages. The four cornerstones stay on Parker’s Piece, the others travel to five countries across the planet in a cultural exchange.
For centuries, Parker's Piece has been used for sport, recreation and public events. But where do you play football? Share your stories, photographs and film about the beautiful game wherever it is played.
Brought Back to Cambridge
In 2017, football stories, images and sounds gathered from around the world will be displayed on Parker’s Piece as Cambridge’s stone marker is unveiled - celebrating the city’s role in the story of football.
Looking out over the wilds of Colne, there just happens to be a football match in the foreground.
