The football playing field is rectangular, its length shall not be greater than 120 meters or less than 90 meters, and its width shall not be greater than 90 meters or less than 45 meters. In any case, the length must exceed the width. FIFA's specification requirements for approved venues are 105*68 meters.

The playing field must be rectangular, and the length of the side lines must be longer than the length of the goal line.

Length: longest 42 meters, shortest 25 meters

Width: maximum 25 meters, minimum 15 meters

Under the principles of the above provisions, the competition venue can be adapted to local conditions.

Futsal pitch dimensions

The court surface must be flat and of appropriate hardness, in order not to harm the players and not affect the normal elasticity of the ball and the players.

Generally, it is flattened with sand and mud mixed with soil, and the surface is covered with fine sand with a thickness of at least one centimeter. The principle is to sprinkle water on the field before the game to keep the surface moist.

Boundary lines: Boundary lines should be drawn on the playing field, and the width of the lines should be 8 cm. The boundary lines are divided into side lines, goal lines, center lines, center circle lines, penalty area lines, and substitution area lines.

The two short lines connecting the goal lines are called goal lines, the two longer lines connecting the goal lines are called side lines, and the line across the middle of the court connecting the two side lines is called the center line. Draw an obvious mark at the midpoint of the center line and use it as the center of the circle. Draw a circle with a radius of 3 meters called the middle circle.

Penalty area: Take a midpoint on the goal line between the two goal posts, take the midpoint as the center of the circle, and draw an arc with a radius of 6 meters into the field to connect with the goal lines on both sides of the goal posts. This arc The area formed by the line and the six lines of the ball is called the penalty area (if the width of the court is more than 25 meters, a radius of 7 meters can be used, and if the width is 15-20 meters, a radius of 5 meters can be used).

Penalty kick point: Take a midpoint on the goal line between the two goal posts, draw a vertical line to the arc of the penalty area and mark the point where the arc intersects, which is called the penalty kick point.

Substitution area: On the sideline where substitutions are set up on the court, draw an 80cm long line 3 meters perpendicular to the sideline on both sides, based on the center line, with 40cm drawn inside the court and 40cm drawn outside the court. It is the area that stipulates the substitution of athletes into and out of the field.

Goal: The goal is located in the center of the two goal lines. It is composed of two upright door pillars 3 meters apart on the inside and a horizontal beam 2 meters below the ground. The width of the doorposts and beams are both 8 cm.

There is a net hanging behind the goal, and there should be a certain amount of space between the net, the goalposts, and the crossbar, so as not to affect the goalkeeper's activities and to facilitate observation of the ball entering the goal. The goal can be fixed or moved.

Lighting: For night games, the stadium will set up 3-4 light poles 1.5 meters away from the sideline, with each pole being more than 6 meters high.

Blocking: Set up poles around the court along the six ball lines and 1.5 meters away from the sideline, with a height of more than 6 meters.

Seats: If there are seats (or fixed seats) on the sidelines of the stadium, they must be 1.5 meters away from the sidelines.

The playing field must be rectangular. Except that the size of the field is smaller than that of the eleven-a-side pitch, other places are relatively similar.

Size: 45-90 meters long, 45-60 meters wide

Goal: 5 meters wide, 2 meters high

Take the midpoint of the field as the center of the circle and draw a circle with a radius of 6 meters as the middle circle.

Sevens pitch dimensions

From the goal line to 10 meters into the playing field, draw a line balanced between the goal line and the two sidelines. The area composed of these lines and the goal line is the penalty area. --Penalty area

Draw a penalty kick mark in each penalty area 9 meters away from the midpoint of each goal. --Penalty kick point

Game ball: Use No. 4 ball.

Number of players: There should be 2 teams participating in a game. Each team must have no more than 7 players, including a goalkeeper. If any team has less than 4 players, it will be forfeited. There is no limit to the number of substitute players in the game. , but the substituted player may not participate in the game again.

Team equipment: Each team wears uniform uniforms. All teams wear cloth-covered rubber shoes (either flat-soled or rubber-soled) during competitions.

Game time: divided into two halves, 25 minutes each, with a 10-minute break in between.

Free kick: The defensive player must be at least 6 meters away from the penalty spot.

Goal kick: A goal kick can be scored directly into the opponent's goal.

Most of the rules of seven-a-side football are the same as those of eleven-a-side football.

The width of the field boundary should not exceed 120, and the width of the boundary line is included in each area of the field.

Football match venue specifications: 105 meters long * 68 meters wide

The size of the lawn extension area of the outdoor venue and the buffer zone of the indoor venue should be greater than or equal to 1.5 meters.

Eleven pitch dimensions

Line width must not exceed 12 cm (5 inches). The two long sides are called "sidelines" and the two short sides are called "end lines" ("goal lines"). The center line across the court is called the "center line". The area of each area in the stadium includes the drawn line, which means that the length and width of each area are based on the outside of the drawn line.

Different from the rules of basketball, the lines on the football field not only constrain the horizontal range of the ground, but also constrain the three-dimensional range of the space vertically upward, that is, there are regulations for out-of-bounds in the air.


It is 7.32 meters (8 yards) long and 2.44 meters (8 feet) high, which means the length is exactly three times the height. The two front posts of the goal must be centered on the short side (end line) of the pitch. The length and width of the goal are measured from the inside of the goal post and goal beam. There is no strict rule about the width of the goal. The width and thickness of door posts and door beams must be ≤12 cm and should be symmetrical and equal.

The goal must be white. The net must be propped up behind the goal to give the goalkeeper ample room to move. If the goal is dislocated or broken during the game, the game should be suspended immediately. If it can be restored, the game will continue (the crossbar can be replaced with a rope after it is completely removed), otherwise the game will be terminated. This is done to ensure the safety of the players.


Commonly known as the small penalty area: If you look carefully at the picture, the rectangular area between the goal post and the two corners of the goal area is actually a square with a length of 5.5 meters (6 yards) and a width of 5.5 meters (6 yards). That is to say, the area of the goal area = 5.5× 5.5×2+7.32×5.5=100.76 square meters.


The radius is 9.15 meters (10 yards) and the kick-off point diameter is 22 centimeters. The function of the center circle is that at the beginning of the game (or kick-off), before the referee blows the whistle, no player from the kick-off team is allowed to enter this circle. The purpose is to ensure that the kick-off team players can kick the ball out and make the game easier. Start off smoothly.


Commonly known as the restricted area, it is 16.5 meters (18 yards) wide. If a defensive player commits a foul here, he will be given a penalty kick. This is what the attacking player likes to see most. Let me emphasize that the distance between the penalty spot and the goal line is 12 yards (about 11 meters), not 10 yards (about 9 meters). Many people are confused on this issue.

The arc of the penalty area, commonly known as the penalty arc, is an arc drawn outside the penalty area with the penalty point as the center and a radius of 10 yards (9.15 meters), so it is the same as the arc of the center circle of the court. So this is equivalent to actually having three large circles with a radius of 9.15 (10 yards) meters on the court, except that the areas in the penalty area of the circles on both sides are erased.

The diameter of the penalty spot is 22 centimeters.


The radius of the corner flag arc is 1 meter (1 yard). Plant one corner flag at each of the four corners of the site. The height of the flag should not be less than 1.5 meters (5 feet) and the flag should be rectangular. In addition, you can also plant such a small flag at least 1 meter (1 yard) away from both ends of the center line, but we rarely see this done in actual games (it is not mandatory).
