A goal consists of two upright posts equidistant from the corner flagposts and joined at the top by a horizontal crossbar. The goalposts and crossbar must be made of wood, metal or other approved material. They may be square, rectangular, round or elliptical in shape and must not be dangerous to players.

Nets may be attached to the goals and the ground behind the goal, provided that they are properly supported and do not interfere with the goalkeeper. The goalposts and crossbars must be white."

### How many yards apart is a goal that is marked by posts?

In soccer, the "regulation" width of the goal is 8 yards, or 24 feet. A goal that is marked by posts alone, that is, a goal that lacks a crossbar, might be used in special circumstances.
