All World Cup soccer fields must be a minimum of 110 yards to a maximum of 120 yards long by a minimum of 70 yards to a maximum of 80 yards wide. These dimensions are applicable for international soccer matches.

The dimensions of World Cup soccer fields must adhere to those cited in Law 1 of FIFA’s Laws of the Game. FIFA is the governing body of international soccer and sets all rules of play. Law 1 also determines all inner pitch markings and safety rules for the goal posts. The field surface can be grass or artificial and must meet certain requirements.
