The Soccer Pitch

By Michael Shanks

The rule for dimensions is very basic for a soccer pitch, just that the length of the touch line (sideline) be longer than the length of the goal line.  The length can be between 90 and 120 meters, and the width can be between 45 and 60 meters. (Soccer field dimensions)

The soccer pitch is often viewed as a battlefield, in that both sides have a half as safe territory, and both sides must somehow penetrate the opposition’s half.  In that sense, the soccer pitch provides us a sense of competition.

There are certain mystical qualities surrounding various famous pitches throughout the world, such as the site of the first world cup, the Estadio Centenario in Uruguay. There is much legend surrounding certain soccer stadiums, as great games that were played there carry on in the memories of the fans and the players.

And don't forget that many times people died building these amazing stadiums - many times because they were rushed to finish them in time for a World Cup - as is the case with the World Cup coming up in Brazil. These soccer stadiums and soccer pitches are therefore sacred fields.

Physically, the soccer pitch provides a place for us to play the game we love. The grass provides traction for our cleats, in order for us to better move around playing the game.
