    Hi,


    I joined a soccer team and stayed there for an year. During that year, one of our teammates had gone to another city. Before he left, the rest of the teammates bought a soccer together and wrote down our names. And I remember that day we also got together first and went to dinner and finally we wrote our names on the ball. I said something at that time like the following:


    We’ll meet first for autographing the soccer for you then we’ll go to the restaurant for dinner.


    I wonder if it sounds natural.


    Thoughts:


    I looked up the word and I think it works, but I am not sure it’s very common to be natural.

    Thanks a lot

    No. Soccer is the game...you can't autograph a game. You autograph a soccer ball.

    It's a soccer ball, not a soccer.

    We’ll meet first to autograph the soccer ball for you, then we’ll go to the restaurant for dinner.
