Yeah. They say you can find anything on the Internet. Rrrrrrright. Try wanting something a little unusual. Eh? Why is it that I can't find the area of a friggin' football field?

If anyone should happen to know how many acres a football field covers, please have some pitty and be so kind as to let the rest of the world know. Thank you!!!

Well, most pitches are 110 x 75 yards which makes it's area 8250 yards. I don't know how the hell you work out acres though.

Thank you - but, I don't play football so I don't know what a "pitch" is - is that the goalish thing at the end? I thought those were "endposts" or something akin. Does a "pitch" define the boundaries of the field? Sorry for my lack of jargon!!!

Football fields differ in size.

SCG 147m x 136m
Colonial Stadium - Melbourne 159m x 130m
Football Park - Adelaide 165m x 133m
The Gabba") - Brisbane 160m x 139m
MCG - Melbourne 160m x 139m
Optus Oval - Melbourne 160m x 139m
Manuka Oval - Canberra 164m x 136m
Subiaco - Perth 170m x 122m
York Park - Launceston 165m x 135m
Skilled Stadium - Geelong 169m x 115m
Stadium Australia - Sydney 159m x 118m

The MCG is basically 17553 m2 = 4.33 acres = 20994 square yards = 188870 square feet.

A football field is 360' x 160' or 57,600 square feet. That is equal to 1.322319 acres.

If it's gridiron football, I second Sleekjet.

160 ft wide by 360 ft end line to end line makes 57600 sq ft. Which equals 1.322309 acres, 0.5351215 hectares, 5351.215 sq meters, etc....

Aaah - this is not good. I'm American. Does that change things? Not soccer here, this is American football we're talking about. What on Earth is "gridiron football"???

Gridiron football is American-style since the lines on the field resemble a gridiron, especially when there used to be lines running the long way of the field under old rules.

Hehe...I can confuse you even worse. Here in America, a football field is 160 22.5" step long. Those are 8 to 5 steps (8 steps for every 5 yards, and you'd better hit that yardline squarely in the middle [arch] of your right foot!).

Pick up the tempo a little bit, and it's only 120 30" (6 to 5) steps long.

(Note, those are goal line to goal line to goal line figures, obviously. We never march in the end zones, unless we're coming on or off the field. There aren't any lines there to march by).

I think he's talking marching band terminology.

MD-90,

Ah yes, the good old 22.5" step, and if you are on the wrong foot or don't hit the yard line at the precise moment you have to, may God have pity on your soul!  Nuts
