Because that's what the Brits called it. And the reason they call soccer 'football' is dumber than the reason we call our football 'football'.
Yeah, calling a game primarily reliant on using your foot to kick a ball 'football' is definitely dumber than calling a game where you're mostly throwing or holding a ball in your hands 'football'.
That’s not why it’s called football. It’s called football because you play it without a horse.
