How Many Football Pitches in a Hectare?

One hectare comprises between 1.2 and 1.6 "football pitches," as soccer fields are known in British English. An internationally-sanctioned soccer field is 100 to 110 meters in length by 64 to 75 meters in width, comprising between 0.62 and 0.82 hectares depending on the field.

These measurements are based on the standards of the governing world body of soccer, known as the Federation Internationale de Football Association, or FIFA. Non-international fields are sometimes smaller or larger, measuring between 90 and 120 meters in length by 45 to 90 meters in width. These fields encompass a wider range of areas, between 0.39 and 1.07 hectares.
