They need to qualify if they mean 5 a side or full size, meaningless otherwise 😄

Because there are an awful lot of ignorant folk out there that haven't a clue what a hectare or acre are but can instantly relate to a football pitch ... just saying like ... :wicked:

I agree, maybe they should say "approximately the size of a standard large sized football pitch" 

After all they are not all the same size

The same as hectares as a measurement. Where's that come from.  What's up with acres ( football pitch size )

Right, and also because it gives a better idea of dimensions than say, x hectares/acres.

My own tool of comparison is the size of my a***. Not much comes bigger than that, not even a blue whale.  Solar eclipse on demand.
