How to draw a football stadium

Updated July 19, 2017

Familiarising yourself with the dynamics of a football field will work in your favour when drawing a football stadium. In addition to seating and stands to house fans, football fields need to include the rectangular-shaped field, complete with yard markers, sidelines, goalposts and tunnels for player entrances and exiting.

  1. Draw a rectangle in the centre of your paper. Colour the entire area inside the rectangle green to resemble grass, unless you are drawing Boise State University's stadium, which has a “blue turf” field. Professional, college and high school football fields are all rectangle shapes.

  2. Draw a straight line at each thin end of your rectangle, creating congruent smaller rectangles within your initial drawing. These “end zones” are 10 yards in length on a football field. From one of your end zones draw 10 similar lines until your reach the other end zone.

  3. In each of your end zones draw small congruent diagonal lines across the rectangle. On both ends of the first non-end zone line write the number 10 bracketing the line. Continue with this pattern by 10s up to 50. Now reverse the pattern back down to 10 moving towards the other end zone.

  4. Around this field draw a large white rectangle within a larger oval.

  5. Draw a large dark square surrounding the entire field with a small amount of space between this square and the large oval. Draw another square three times larger than the initial dark square to complete the outline of the stadium. Within the space between the two squares begin drawing lighter-shaded squares from larger to smaller until you reach the square nearest the field. From the corner of the large square draw a pair of parallel lines towards the corner of the smallest square to complete the stands.
