Ans.  24 feet

 Explanation- In football, the goal structure is defined as a frame 24 feet (7.32 m) wide by 8 feet (2.44 m) tall. In most organized levels of play a net is attached behind the goal frame to catch the ball and indicate that a goal has been scored; however, the Laws of the Game do not mandate the use of a net and only require that any net used should not interfere with the goalkeeper. The goal structure in field hockey is 3.66 metres (12.0 ft) wide by 2.14 metres (7.0 ft) tall. In ice hockey, the goal structure is a frame 4 feet (1.2 m) tall and 6 feet (1.8 m) wide with a net attached.
