How Long Is a Football Field?

The standard length of a football field is 120 yards, or 360 feet. Football fields are 160 feet wide. Football stadiums provide extra space around the field for players, coaches and media members to stand and to prevent players from running into barriers at high speeds.

The main portion of a football field is 100 yards in length; 10-yard end zones are at both sides. A player who has possession of the ball in the end zone scores a touchdown.

Soccer field dimensions vary, but most are approximately the same length of football fields. However, soccer fields are generally 60 to 70 yards wide, which creates a significantly larger playing area.
