More Soccer Field Zones images
The four general zones of a soccer field are broken up into offensive zone, midfield zone, defensive zone, and the goal zone. Each area is of equal importance, and if one is weak the entire team is bound to suffer.
A-8, a field for players age six and under is approximately 0.12 acres in area while a field for adults can require nearly two acres. Additional area is also required for spectator areas, bad shots and errant passes. An adult soccer field with supporting areas may need up to three acres of land.

spectator buffer line from the touchline up to 3 yards if their field(s) sideline allows. 2. Technical areas (shown at the bottom of FIGURE 1) should be 1 yard from the touch line. The length of each technical area should be 10 yards in length and each should be located 1 yard from the center of the field (2 yards apart from one another). 3.
The width shall not be more than 80 yards (73.15M) nor less than 65 yards (59.44m) and the length shall not be more than 120 yards (109.72m) nor less than 110 yards (100.58m); however, fields of less than minimal dimensions may be used by prior written mutual consent of the competing institutions.
Dividing the field into zones. The playing field is typically divided into several parts. There are many different approaches to this division. One method is to divide the field into the predetermined lines of the formation. There are usually either three or four horizontal lines or bands. In a 4-4-2 there are three bands and in a 4-1-4-1 there are four.
The positional soccer field is divided into vertical and horizontal zones that indicate positional responsibilities for the players. The interesting thing about positional soccer is that the player’s options to some extent are predetermined by the position of the ball.
By dividing the field into a six-by-three grid, there are 18 zones on the pitch. Zone 14 is the zone located in the middle of the pitch immediately outside the penalty area appears crucial for goal scoring (Taylor et al., 2002). It is shown in the following diagram. The location of Zone 14 (Grant et al., 1998) Why is Zone 14 so important?
