The Geography of Soccer Pitches
Pitch Perfect is a map of all 92 professional football clubs in England and Wales. The map shows the pitch and stadium of each club and includes details on the length, width and total area of each team's playing pitch.
There can be a relativity large difference in the size of different football pitches. The length of a football pitch must be between 100 yards (90m) and 130 yards (120m). The width of a pitch must be no less than 50 yards (45m) and no more than 100 yards (90m).
This map of all professional football clubs in England and Wales provides a plan outline of each stadium and each club's pitch. The map will have some appeal to dedicated fans of English soccer, however the map is really more of a little bonus feature for the more interesting Pitch Perfect poster.
The Pitch Perfect infographic plots the pitches of all 92 football clubs on top of each over. The length, width and orientation of each of the 92 pitches creates a beautiful 'spirograph' pattern and is a great illustration of the wide variety in pitch sizes in the English professional football leagues.
You can download the infographic poster as a PDF. The poster measures 65 x 40 in and is 300 dpi for high quality printing.
