Thanks for your input! Let us know more about what's wrong in the form below.
How long is 33.02 centimeters?
It's about one-three-hundred-fiftieth as long as a Football field
The length of a Football field is about 10,972.80 centimeters.
(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 10,972.80 centimeters from end to end. Because each team's goalpost is located at the far end of the scoring area (end zone), a ball on a scoring play may need to travel as many as 914.40 centimeters farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it.
