Best Answer

The D, otherwise known as the penalty arc, marks an exclusion zone where no outfield players are allowed to stand during the taking of a penalty kick. The distance between any point on the penalty arc, and the penalty spot itself, is 10 yards (9.15 metres).

That's the D shaped area in front of the penalty area. It has limited use.
