Where pitches are marked on an existing 11 a side Pitch with White lines then the lines for the small sided games should be clearly distinguishable. We recommend using BLUE for all Small Sided Pitch Markings that are played on a Pitch with existing White Lines.
If marking out a 9 a side on an 11 a side pitch that is 90m in length (a minimum sized pitch), we recommend placing the goals on the edge of the 6 yard box.
