Not all soccer fields, or pitches, are the same size, even in professional settings; however, the preferred size for a professional soccer pitch is 105 by 68 metres (115 yards by 74 yards). Even still, many well-known venues house bigger or smaller fields.
The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) states the length of a pitch must be from 100 yards to 130 yards, while the width should be between 50 yards and 100 yards. This results in many variations. For example, Sunderland's Stadium of Light is the standard 115 by 74 yards. West Ham United's Boleyn Ground is a relatively small 110 by 70 yards. The pitch at City of Manchester Stadium is an expansive 116.5 by 78 yards.
