Football Field Dimensions
Here are the dimensions of a football field:
Football Field Width
A regulation football field measures 53 and 1/3 yards wide.
LINGO ALERT: When we say regulation in this context, we mean a standard size football field.
Football Field Length
A regulation football field measures 120 yards in length.
IMPORTANT: You may have heard before that a football field is 100 yards long. This is incorrect. A regulation football field is 120 yards in length. Most people get confused because they think the field of play is 100 yards long. The end zones are 10 yards long making the total length of a football field 120 yards.
