A football field (also known as A football pitch or soccer field) is the playing surface for the game of association football. Its dimensions and markings are decided by Law 1 of the Laws of the Game, “The Field of Play”. The surface can be either natural or artificial, but FIFA’s Laws of the Game define that all artificial surfaces must be colored green. The pitch is typically made of turf (grass) or artificial turf, although non professional and recreational teams generally play on silt fields.
Football Field (marking Lines)
All line markings on the pitch form part of the Region which they Fixed. For example, a ball on or above the touchline is still on the field of play, and a foul Detected over the 16.5-metre (18-yard) line has Happened in the penalty area. Therefore, a ball must Totally cross the touchline to be out of play, and a ball must completely cross the goal line (between the goal posts) before a goal is scored; if any part of the ball is still on or above the line, the ball is still in play.
Football Field (descriptions)
The field descriptions that apply to adult matches are define below. Note that due to the original formulation of the Laws in England and the early primacy of the four British football associations within IFAB, the standard dimensions of a football pitch were initially indicated in imperial units. The Laws now indicate dimensions with estimated metric equivalents (followed by traditional units in brackets), but use of the imperial units remains common in some countries, Mostly in the United Kingdom.
Football Field (boundary)
The pitch is rectangular in shape. The longer sides are called touchlines. The other opposite sides are called the goal lines. The two goal lines must be between 45 and 90 m (50 and 100 yd) and be the same distance. The two touch lines must also be of the same length, and be between 90 and 120 m (100 and 130 yd) in lengthwise. All lines must be equally large, not to exceed 12 centimetres (5 in). The corners of the pitch are marked by corner flags.
Football Field For (International Matches)
For international matches the Football Field dimensions are more hardly controlled; the goal lines must be between 64 and 75 m (70 and 80 yd) long and the touch lines must be between 100 and 110 m (110 and 120 yd). In March 2008 the IFAB set out to equalize the size of the football pitch for international matches and set the official dimensions of a pitch to 105 m long by 68 m wide. However, at a special meeting of the IFAB on 8 May 2008, it was ruled that this change would be put on hold pending a review and the suggest change has not been applied.
