Best Answer

The IRB rules state that

The field of play does not exceed 100 metres in length and 70 metres in width. Each in-goal does not exceed 22 metres in length and 70 metres in width.

(2) The length and breadth of the playing area are to be as near as possible to the dimensions indicated. All the areas are rectangular.

(3) The distance from the goal line to the dead ball line should be not less than 10 metres where practicable.

How is football and soccer related?

They are related in the foundations of the two sports. American football is derived from the sport Rugby. Both Rugby and Soccer are related as there was a disagreement on the set of rules which was going to be created (around 1863). This led to a split in the original committee into the Football Assosiation (otherwise better known as FA) and the Rugby Football Union (known as RFU). Apart from the origins of the sports, they share few relations, the most prominent being the pitch.. The Pitch for soccer, American Football and Rugby are the same size.
