Football (EU/International), or soccer (US), is a team sport where points are scored by kicking a ball through a goal. A common game enjoyed and shared by hundreds of millions of people around the world, nearly anyone can participate in the sport because the only equipment required is a ball. Professional football is regulated internationally by FIFA (International Federation of Association Football), which coordinates male and female international FIFA World Cup tournaments every four years.

How long is a soccer game?

Soccer games are made up of two 45 minute halves with a halftime rest period of 15 minutes. Additional stoppage time is commonly added to the end of each half at the discretion of the referee to make up for any lost time due to game delays. If the game cannot end in a tie (commonly during an elimination tournament), two additional 15 minute overtime periods are added to the game with the possibility of a final penalty kick round if the game still remains tied. Soccer games commonly last roughly two hours.

How many players are on a soccer team?

Each soccer team is allowed to have a maximum of 11 players on the pitch at a single time. Teams are able to have a bench of additional players that ranges from 3 to 12 substitute players.


Who invented soccer?

England invented the modern game of football (soccer). Though there were similar types of football sports dating thousands of years in the past, the English were the first to create the uniform rule set for the sport that is played around the world today.

Football Pitch | Field

Football fields, or football pitches, are the rectangular playing surfaces used for the sport of football (soccer). While grass is the typical playing surface, football can also be played on artificial turf or informally on dirt surfaces. The long length of the field, bounded by the touchlines, must be between 295’-394’ | 90-120 m, while the shorter width, defined by the goal lines, is between 148’-295’ | 45-90 m. Goals are located on the center of each opposing goal line and are 24’ | 7.32 m wide. The football pitch is split with a half-way line and a center circle with a radius of 30’ | 9.15 m.

Other crucial areas of the football field include the goal area and the penalty area/marks. The goal area is a rectangular zone centered on the goal starting 18’ | 5.5 m out from both goalposts and extending 18’ | 5.5 m into the pitch. Around this area is the larger penalty area that is 54’ | 16.5 m from the posts and 54’ | 16.5 m out. For penalty kicks, the penalty mark is centered at 36’ | 11 m from the goal. A circular penalty arc extends at a radius of 30’ | 9.15 m from the penalty mark. Corner radii are set at 3’ | .9 m.
