At the front of the endzone
There are two uprights.
Goal posts, commonly referred to as "uprights."
Usually said when the kicker kicks the ball through the center of the goal posts.
The word "uprights" refers to the vertical goal posts that supports the goal crossbar.
The distance between the two goal lost uprights is 5.4 metres. The height from ground to cross bar (top of the rail) must be 3 metres . From the top of the cross bar to the top of the two uprights must be 3.4 metres.When padding is attached to the goal posts the distance from the goal line to the external edge of the padding must not exceed 300mm
The goal posts @ Collegiate and Professional levels are 18'6" (eighteen feet & six inches) apart, supended by a crossbar which is 10' (ten feet) off the ground. The uprights (the two posts) extend 30' (thirty feet) into the air, making for a total height of the goal posts of 40' (forty feet) off the ground in total.
The two uprights are treated as if they extend upward to infinity. So the height of the ball as it passes over/through the uprights does not matter.
In college football and the NFL, the distance between the goal posts is 120 yards. The distance between the uprights is 19 feet and 1 inch. Yes?
NFL goal posts are 10 feet high and 18.5 feet wide.
If a point after touchdown or field goal attempt should hit the goal post and go through the uprights, it is considered a good kick. However, if a passed ball or a fumble hits the goal posts, the ball is considered dead.
The goal post dimensions in Canadian football are the same as in American football. The goal posts are on the goal line. The hash marks are not in line with the uprights.
