    What is the difference between soccer and football?

    Is one of them more AmE than BrE?

    The differences are many. Dictionaries and a web search will provide detailed descriptions of the games that carry these names.

    Have you consulted dictionaries?

    AE uses both terms, each for a different game.

    In particular, the WR dictionary will point you to previous discussions on this point.
