The soccer goal is 8 x 8 and that makes it easy to remember. But it isn't square, and anyone who has looked at a goal knows this. It is 8 feet high by 8 yards wide, and the post is going to be 8 feet in height. The metric equivalent is 2.44 meters high by 7.32 meters wide. The Laws of the Game can be reviewed just as they were handed down from FIFA, the world governing body of soccer, by Surfing the link directly to the .pdf version of them (in English).

Well, its 100 yards from endzone to endzone. And each endzone is 10 yards wide. So my assumption would be 120 yards.
