This would depend on how wide the field is.The goal line can be 50 to 100 yards long.The penalty area must be 44 yards wide and must be centered on the goal line.So the touch line must be between 3 and 28 yards from the edge of the penalty area.

The penalty area is bounded by lines 18 yards from the inside of each goal post, so the total width of the penatly area is 18 yards + 8 yards (width of the goal) + 18 yards = 44 yards. The minimum width of a soccer field is 50 yards. So theoretically the penalty area could be as close as 3 yards from the touch line. The maximum width of a soccer field is 100 yards, so the maximum distance to the touch line would be 28 yards. For international matches, the width of the field must be between 70 and 80 yards, so the distance to the touch line would be between 13 and 18 yards.
