Jordi Alba uttered a phrase that sounds like a cliché in many players: “this field is small”. It referred to the City of Valencia, Levante Stadium where Barcelona drew one and let pass the opportunity to stand solo leader. A phrase that for many may be obvious but analyzing the dimensions of the Levantine enclosure is not far.
The Ciutat de Valencia has a standard size of 107×67, recommended by FIFA and very similar to having the Camp Nou or the Bernabeu. Being a stadium with less capacity or the stands more or less near the lawn can lead to many coliseums to give a picture of small field but reality dictates far from well in most cases, leaving aside those parties or gatherings where teams specifically reduce the size of your home to harm rival.
FIFA as we mentioned recommend using the standardized 105×68 (binding in World) but it allows the rules to use for length measures ranging from 90 until the 120 meters and 45 until 90 in width to national championships and fork 100-110 for international tournaments long by 64-75 width.
Having said that, How are the Spanish fields? What it is the most largo¿ And the wider? As well, most respond to the recommendation of FIFA but for example the Martinez Valero in Elche has 108×70 It is the longest and the Vallecas 100×65 proving to be the shortest and narrow. curiously, the width does not belong to any team but the first 105 Helmántico Salamanca×72.
