How many football fields in an acre?

Acre = 43,560 square feet 1 Acre = 160 square rods 1 Acre = 1.1834 square arpents 1 Acre = 10 square chains 1 Acre = 160 square rods 1 Acre = 160 perches 1 Acre = 160 poles 1 Acre = .4047 hectare 1 Acre = 4047 square meters 1 Acre = is about 208 3/4 feet square 1 Acre Square = 5645.376 square varas

People don't realize that one acre is the size of a football field According to my calculations if an American football field is 160 feet wide (53.3-repeating Yards), you would have an acre when you went from one goal line to just inside the 10 yard line at the other end (90.75 yards). Sportscasters might say, "First down and goal to go, just inside the ten yard line (or at the nine yard line)."

An acre as pointed out in the post above is 4840 square yards (a square yard is similar in size to a square meter but slightly smaller). Multiplying 53.3 repeating by 90.75 yards gives approximately 4840 square yards.
