A Rugby field is 100 metres long from score-line to score-line, whereas an nfl field is 100 yards from score-line to score-line. 1 metre = 0.91 yards, so... Rugby Field: 100 Metres NFL Field: 91 Metres
The rugby pitch is slightly larger.
An American football field, including the end zones, is 120 yards long (109.7 meters) and 53.3 yards wide (48.7 meters). The field must conform to those measurements.
The rugby pitch, in comparison, can vary in size, but the playing area must not exceed 100 meters in depth and 70 meters in width, and the dimensions are expected to conform with these measurements as closely as possible. The try zones must not exceed 22 meters each in depth nor be shallower than 10 meters, "where practicable." So a rugby pitch generally spans from 130 to 144 meters long and 70 meters wide.
A rugby pitch under IRB rules may NOT exceed 100 meters long and 70 meters wide with and in goal area of no more that 22 meters. Converting to US measurements for comparison purposes, this is approx. 300 feet X 210 feet in dimension.
A Baseball field is 325 feet from Home Plate to the outfield wall on the left and right field foul lines, and 400 feet from Home Plate to the center field wall. (These are minimum dimensions as described in the Official Baseball Rules.)
So although they are different shapes, the fields are quite similar in size, with the baseball field being larger.
The Australian AFL field is played on a cricket field, the US NFL field would fit inside this with room to move
A rugby pitch is slightly larger then a soccer pitch.
They Are the same both 100 yards
It isn't. People think it is because when the people show the football pitch, it looks bigger. When it's the rugby pitch they show it at the side so it looks smaller than a football pitch. From :)
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.
The field of play for a GAA pitch has some flexibility within which it must be: The recommended dimensions are:Length - 130 metres minimum to 145 metres maximumWidth - 80 metres minimum to 90 metres maximumAll pitches can be different sizes but they must be between 130 yards and 145 yards (in length)
No, rugby was invented during a game of soccer or as i say it football.
no such thing. - The equivalent kick in soccer and rugby would be the placed penalty kick.
