No it is not permissible in Islam to play it or watch it for a variety of reasons (time wasting, cloth they wear, risk of injury, creation of hatred between different people, etc)...

if you fulfill all that you need to do like praying and fasting its perfectly acceptable however if you choose to go play a game instead of praying and you miss a salat thats when it becomes haram many sheikhs say everything is allowed in islam unless stated otherwise so if you just go play or wath a football game abstain from all the beer they give out and looking at the cheerleaders at the game and prayer time comes and you pray then it is acceptable

i know what i said above is what others say when they try to argue ciggaretes are halal but we arent supposed to ruin our bodies so just putting that out there......
