The smallest you should go for true scale is 600mm long, 300mm wide, although a minimum of 420mm wide is preferred, and that's to the dead ball line, you need some space around that for the Linesmen to run in, Managers and Coaches to shout, scream and gesticulate, and the reserve coming on to warm up...
