In international matches, the length of the field must be between 110-120 yards (330-360 feet), with a width between 70-80 yards (210-240 feet).
The International Football Association Board has specific guidelines for the field of play in a FIFA regulation match. Here’s the gist:
The length of the touch lines must be between 100-130 yards (300-390 feet), with a width between 50-100 yards (150-300 feet).
In international matches, such as today’s World Cup, the length of the field must be between 110-120 yards (330-360 feet), with a width between 70-80 yards (210-240 feet).
The width of each line must be the same and cannot be more than 5 inches.
By comparison, the average NFL football field measures 100 yards (300 feet) by 53 1/3 yards wide (about 160 feet). And so, in case there any debates going on in your house right now, a World Cup soccer field
bigger than the field at the Super Bowl.
