Hi,
can we use start up in this sentence?

Did you start up football?

Like 'did you take up football?' (take up a new hobby)

    Hello,

    No, "Did you start up football?" is not an alternative to "Did you take up football?"

    "Did you take up football?" means, as you say, "Did you start playing football as a hobby?", but "Did you start up football?" does not mean anything.
