According to the Laws of the Game, a football pitch should measure between 0.5220 furlongs (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 0.5230 furlongs, and later converted to the metric units used today).

It's about one-sixtieth as long as a Football field.
In other words, 0.0089 furlongs is 0.0163167 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 61.28690 times that amount.(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
