I have found different answers for this question. I have seen 24ft. 18ft. and 8yd.
I'd suggest looking somewhere else for this answer.
The goal posts would be 40 yards away. The end zone is ten yards deep.
Thegoal post is directly above the endline of the endzone and is completely out of the endzone as the endline is out of bounds.
An ambiguous question. Posts of the same goal or posts from opposite goals?
The distance between the goal posts is officially 7 yards; so that is 21 feet. In metric that is 6.4 metres. The width of the goal posts themselves is not official, so this might vary; but the rule states that at lest the bottom 2 metres of each post must be padded as protection. In some grounds, the base of the posts can be even 8 or 9 inches thick due to the padding.
There are many places where one could find information on the distance that joins a football goal post. The best place to find this information would be the website Wikipedia.
The goal post is ten feet above the ground right above the back of the endzone.
23 feet, 4 inches.
