The Rules of Soccer ball Field

Soccer can be played on either a grass field or a surface covered by artificial turf. Soccer games must, however, be played on a surface that is green in color.

The soccer field must have a rectangular shape, with two distinct short goal lines and two distinct long-touch lines.

A halfway line, which is a straight line connecting the midpoints of the two touchlines, divides the field into halves.

At the midpoint of the halfway line, there is a marked center point that is enclosed by a lined center circle. The lined center circle has a radius of 10 yards.

During kickoff, players from the non-possessing team are not allowed to enter the lined center circle. The touch lines must have a greater length than the  goal lines.

The Pitch Surface

Although grass is the recommended surface of play, artificial turf may also be used. This is allowed especially in countries with extreme weather conditions where the grass may not grow well and may require expensive maintenance.

For instance, in countries where the climate is extremely dry or wet like in snowing countries, grass surfaced pitch may not be a viable option.

Instead, artificial turf is used but it has to be green and approved by FIFA since there were concerns that some artificial turf play surface was causing severe injuries to players.

Nevertheless, soccer can also be played on a dirt field, especially if it is a recreational player.
