Football fields, or pitches, are rectangular playing surfaces used for the sport of football (soccer). The long length of the field must be between 295’-394’ | 90-120 m, while the shorter width is between 148’-295’ | 45-90 m. Goals are located on each opposing goal line and are 24’ | 7.32 m wide.
The penalty area is a large rectangular area on each end of the pitch measuring 18 yards long and 36 yards wide. Due to its measurements, the penalty area is also called “the 18.” If a player is taken down inside the penalty area by a defender, that attacking player and their team will earn a penalty kick.
