In fat, Rugby is a very  common team sport in the United States

 American football is closely similar to Canadian football, but it has some variations in the rules of the game and many other features. In the US, three of the major forms of football include high school football, college football and professional football, which are basically the same but vary in some ways from the rules of the game.

The rugby field is 100 yards (about 91 m) long, separated into 20 5-yard (4.5 m) pieces, marked by 19 long white lines across the field. There are four rows of short lines between the long lines, each of four lines divided by one yard (approximately 1 m).

The last segment at either end of the court is called the end-zone, 10 yards (9.1 m) deep, typically diagonal red lines divided by a long white line called the goal line. The end of the penalty area is the final line, followed by the goal posts.

The golf pole is planted in the middle of the course, 10 foot wide, 18 feet 6 inch long crossbar on the north side, with two vertical bars 30 feet high. In all, the football field is 120 yards (109 meters) long and 53 1/3 yards (48 meters) deep.

From the penalty line, every 10 yards, the court will be labelled with the number 10, 20, 30, 40 before the middle of the field is 50. After that amount, the court reverses 40, 30, 20 and 10 in respect of the restricted area of the other group.
