What is the width of football goal posts?

I want my son to practice kicking field goals and extra points.


Answer by  philiwa (26)

I believe the width of the goalposts is larger for high school than the NFL or College. My source for high school states that the goal post width is 23 feet 4 inches wide. My source for the NFL states that the goal post width is 18 feet 6 inches.

According to the National Football League rules, the goal posts must be 18 feet and 6 inches wide, and the crossbar must be 10 feet above the ground.

The foot ball goal posts can have a width ranging from 18 feet 6 inches to 23 feet 4 inches. if your son is high school student, you can go for the 23'4" width. once your son is practised with the high school level, you can slowly move on to a professional width of 18'6".

High school goal posts are 10 feet high and 23 feet and 4 inches wide but college posts are 10 feet high and 18 feet 6 inches wide. In field goals it is 10feet off the ground and between upright posts that are 18 feet 6 inches apart to count.
