Hi Pdk001,

You asked:
which one is the correct spelling between apologize and apologise?
Both are acceptable in British and American English, although 'apologize' is much more common in American English, and many British writers prefer 'apologise'.

Yes, we could even go as far as to say this is true for all -ise/ize words with just a few exceptions such as plagiarise.

It's not "Football"!
Football is the sports with strong men and, well, footballs.
Soccer is "Fussball" or "Foodbal" in english, closer to the german word!
Many, many years ago, 'realise' and 'apologise' were the BrE versions.. Nowadays, 'realize' and 'apolozise' are also BrE.
