90 minutes in football (soccer to the yanks) with the allowance of 30 minutes extra time if it is a draw. (Extra time is not used in some tournaments but i couldn't tell you which one.)

There may also be a penalty shoot out if the game is still drawn after extra time and f the game is still drawn it moves onto sudden death. But generally 90 minutes in football ( a little over depending on injury time) and the time varies in American football.

In the NFL, there are four quarters of 15 minutes each. So that's 60 minutes of actual play time. As for why a televised football game takes 3-4 hours to watch, you'd have to ask the advertisers. As for actual action in a game, that generally is 12-15 minutes.
