What are the dimensions of a soccer field? Here’s a run down of the dimensions of all the different areas of a soccer pitch, from the penalty box to the corner area:

Pitch The length can be between 90 and 120 meters, and the width can be between 45 and 90 meters

Corner Area 1 yard space where the player can move the ball around in when taking a corner kick

Penalty Box (18 yard box) space where the goalie can touch the soccer ball with their hands and if a player is fouled in this area results in a penalty kick

Goal Box (6 yard box) smaller box inside the penalty box, where the goal places the ball for a goal kick

Center Circle  A ten yard area on each side of the half line, where soccer players must stay out of when the ball is kicked off at the beginning of the game

Goal Size 24 feet wide and 8 feet high

Penalty Spot 12 yards from the goal; where penalties are taken

Goal Line the end lines of the soccer field where the ball can go out for a corner kick or a goal kick
