How a GAA pitch looks

The pitch, or field of play, should be rectangular, between 130m and 145m in length and 80m and 90m in width. It can be reduced for younger players.

A series of lines are marked across the pitch at 13m, 20m and 45m from each end line. A further marking at 65m is made for hurling.

These lines are also marked with flags on the sidelines.

There is also a line in the middle of the pitch, 10m long parallel with the end lines.

Two rectangles are marked in front of each goal.

The smaller of the two is 14m by 4.5m in size, the bigger 19m by 13m.

A semi-circle is marked on the centre of the 20m line and a zone extending 5m either side of the centre line is marked where substitutions must be made.

All lines are part of the area which they make up, meaning that the entire ball must cross the perimeter line before it's considered out of play.

The goal measures 6.5m in width and 2.5m in height and the posts should go to a height of at least 7m to form an H.
