How Many Yards is the End Zone?

In football, the end zones are the rectangular areas on each end of the field in which touchdowns are scored. On all four sides, end zones are outlined by white lines that are called the goal line, the end line, and the two sidelines. At most levels, orange pylons also mark the corners of each end zone.

The depth of each end zone, from the goal line to the back of the end zone, is 10 yards. The width of each end zone between the two sidelines is 160 feet, or 53.3 yards, (the same width as the field itself).

How Big is the End Zone Overall?

The end zones make up about 1/6th of the area of the field. Including the added yardage of both end zones (20 yards), a football field is a total of 120 yards long and 160 feet wide. The field goal uprights are placed out of bounds on the end lines, centered directly in the back of the end zone.
