On the size of the pitch

I know this will be worrying all of you...

The pitch at West Ham's stadium is 100.5m by 64m given an area of 6,432 square metres. Twickenham is 105m by 68m, which doesn't sound much longer or wider, about 4 metres in either direction. But do the maths and the area is 7,140 square metres! That's over 700 square metres more playing area to cover!

Interestingly the Wembley pitch is 105m by 69m. In case you were wondering!

Well it's about time I actually got on with something useful.
