What Is a Full Size Football Table?


A football table can come in many sizes, usually depending on the people it's intended for, and the amount and type of use it will get. Family homes and children can use smaller tables, whilst tournament players will want a regulation-sized table that is approved by the sport's governing body.

Read about the different sizes, and find out what a true regulation tournament table is.

What Sizes are Available?

For youngsters and families, or those with limited space, fun tables can go right down to four feet in length, or even as small as 3ft. If you're limited for space or are buying for very young players, we have a range of mini football tables available to buy.

At the other end of the scale, there are special tables built for communal games that can accommodate up to six people at once, and are nearly 10ft in length. These are usually used as promotional tables for special events, or in the common rooms of larger businesses.

Regulation Size

But real football tables, as used in tournaments, bars and homes, measure around 4ft 6in to 5ft in length. This is large enough to get a really good game going, with enough space for you to show off your ball control and volley skills, and to snipe long shots into your opponent's goal.

To be eligible for approved tournaments, they must adhere to ITSF requirements of 56in (L) x 30in (W) x 36in (H). If you are looking for a real tournament table, you can browse our ITSF-approved foosball tables here.
