Best Answer

The penalty area is an 18 yard deep and 44 yard wide rectangle centered in front of the goal at either end of an Association Football pitch. This is the only area in which a defending goalkeeper may handle the ball. If a defending player commits a direct free kick offense within this area, the attacking team is awarded a penalty kick instead of a direct free kick.

There is a smaller area, 6 yards deep and 20 yards wide, called the goal area, inside of the penalty area.
