What Are The Dimensions Of A Turf Flag Football Field?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: January, 2022

A flag football field can be anywhere from 25 to 54 yards wide and 70-120 yards long, with two 10-yard end zones and midfield line-to-gain. A lot depends on what league you play in. Some popular flag football leagues include:
  • American Flag Football League (AFFL)
  • NFL Flag
  • U.S. Flag and Touch Football League

This field size is often smaller than a traditional football field to accommodate a team size that’s not as big. Flag football, especially youth leagues, are often played 5-on-5, 7v7 or 9v9 players. The two end zones, located on opposite sides of the field, are the scoring areas. The field goal line, which a player must cross to score a touchdown, is the start of the end zone. There may or may not be a field house as part of the set up, and there will be equipment and rules similar to those of traditional football.

Now that you know what the range of flag football field dimensions are, you may be wondering what the best turf options are.
