IMG_2250

The maximum pitch size is 60 meters by 35 meters, plus 5 meters for each in-goal area.
Reduced pitch sizes are acceptable provided this is agreed between the referee and coaches of both teams, and smaller pitches do not materially increase the risk of injury to players.
Adjacent pitches should be no closer than 5 meters.
