football field

football field
   1. a common informal unit of distance in the United States and Canada. Americans aren't quite agreed as to whether the unit is exactly 100 yards (91.44 meters), the distance between the goal lines on an American football field, or 120 yards (109.728 meters), the distance including the two end zones. Canadian football fields are 110 yards (100.58 meters) long between the goal lines and 150 yards (137.16 meters) including the end zones. As a distance equal to the length of an athletic field, this unit is analogous to the classical stade or stadium, although the stade is roughly twice as long as a football field.
   2. an informal unit of area in the United States and Canada.Including the end zones, an American football field represents an area ofabout 1.3223 acres or 0.535 hectare whilethe Canadian football field has an area of 2.0145 acres or 0.815 hectare.
