Different codes of football Can't Post or Reply Privately

I have become increasingly fascinated by the origins of football and the diversions which have created the various codes played in the modern day. To my knowledge, there seven codes now in existence, as follows:

Association
Rugby Union
Rugby League
American
Canadian
Australian rules
Gaelic

Does anyone know of any others?

Also, I have watched top level games in all but Canadian and Australian. Has anyone been viewed all seven (regardless of level, but especially if you've paid for entry)?

ps. I don't count International Rules as a separate code, as it is played so rarely and is a combination of GAA and Aussie rules and not all that popular to fans of the latter, as far as I understand.

Well there's all the older 'ba games in Scotland, and in England at Ashbourne, Isle of Axholme possibly more.
