American Football Field Goal Post

Pair of drawings of the front and side of an American Field Goal Post with dimensions for height and width

American football field goal posts are centered above the outside edge of both end zones on a football field. Comprised of a crossbar and vertical uprights, professional field goal posts reach a height of 35’ | 10.7 m and are capped with orange flags to visualize the direction and strength of the wind. A field goal’s crossbar is placed at 10’ | 3.05 m above the playing surface and the vertical uprights are split by 18.5’ | 5.64 m on professional and college fields (23’4” | 7.11 m for High School). Padding should always be placed on the field goal base for player safety.
