Avoiding the Goal Mouth

QUESTION: What is a "goal mouth"?

ANSWER: The area just in front of a goal.  The goal mouths of a soccer field are where much of the action takes place. And because many games are won or lost on a goal’s doorstep, these highly-visible areas need to remain in great shape despite incurring the most foot traffic of any area of the pitch.

During PRACTICES, we kindly ask all teams to stay away from the goal mouth to preserve and protect the area for game use.
