The penalty area serves four purposes.
The line defining the penalty area is considered part of the penalty area. If it was a defender fouling an attacker, then a penalty kick is awarded.
The penalty area is 44 yards wide.
When a penalty kick is taken, only the kicker, the goalkeeper, the referee, and one assistant referee are allowed to be inside the penalty area.
All players, except the penalty taker must be at least 10 yards away from the penalty spot when the penalty is taken. As the Penalty Area extends 18 yards from the goal line, and the Penalty Spot is 12 yards from the goal line, the distance from the Penalty Spot to the edge of the Penalty Area can be as little as 6 Yards. The Arc - not half circle - marks the area outside the Penalty Area, that is within 10 yards of the Penalty Spot, and therefore outside which players must be when the penalty is taken
Only within their own penalty area.
The so-called "18-yard box" is properly called the Penalty Area. It is 44 yards wide (left and right) and 18 yards deep (from the goal line toward midfield, and the origin of the nickname). The Penalty Area contains the Goal Area (the "six-yard box") and the Penalty Mark (12 yards from the center of the goal, or halfway between the edges of the goal area and penalty area lines). Attached to the Penalty Area is an arc (the "Penalty Arc") that forms that part of a 10-yard circle from the Penalty Mark which lies outside of the Penalty Area. This arc is not part of the Penalty Area; it just indicates where players cannot be during a penalty kick.
A penalty kick.
If a foul is given within the penalty arc (the D-shaped bit at the top and center of the penalty area), it will not result in a penalty kick. The area enclosed by the arc is not part of the penalty area. The arc's only purpose is to ensure that players remain 10 yards away from the ball during penalty kicks.
No. It doesn't matter where the goalkeeper is.The ballmust be in the penalty area (on the line is inside) for the keeper to touch it.
How many distance is the penalty area from goal line?
Goal width = 16.5 m Distance from goalpost to each edge = 16.5 m Width of penalty area = 3 * 16.5 = 49.5 m Depth of penalty area = 16.5 m Area of penalty area = 49.5 * 16.5 = 816.75 m2
They are on the sides of the field.
