Overall Dimensions

A Canadian Football Field has greater overall dimensions than all other American leagues. The center line in the CFL is actually the 55 yard line (marked with a “C”). Therefore there are two 50 yard lines. The field in the CFL is also wider than other football fields. The overall dimensions are:

Length: 450 feet or 150 yards

Width: 195 feet or 65 yards

End Zone:
Unlike American football where the end zones are 10 yards deep, the CFL end zones are 20 yards deep.

Dead Line:
The back of the End Zone shall be marked by the dead line.

Field Numbers:
CFL field numbers are 6 feet high and 4 feet wide.

Hash Marks:
CFL Hash marks are marked 24 yards in from the sidelines of the field, making them 17 yards wide (51 feet).

Compared to American football these most closely match the width of High School fields which are 53 feet wide (College – 40 feet, NFL – 18 1/2 feet).

Goal Posts:
CFL goal posts are 10 feet high and 18 feet, 6 inches wide (same as the NFL)
