Rules

Indoor football rules vary by the several forms of football, including as tackle, flag and touch, according to field size and locality. Below are links to some of the more notable authorities. It is USIndoor’s goal to begin to assemble and develop standard rules, with input from the sport’s leaders and enthusiasts.

The Field

A typical indoor football field is 200 feet long by 85 feet wide, the same size as a hockey rink or indoor soccer arena. The playing area is 50 yards long with eight-yard endzones on each end. Each yardline is marked with hashmarks and every five yards is marked with a solid line running from sideline to sideline.

Padded dasher boards surround the field at four feet high. Goalposts are between eight and ten feet wide with the crossbar eight to ten feet off the ground. See your preferred rule set for specific height and width.
