How many official football players are on the field during a game?
There are 22 players on the field if you count both sides. Basically making 11 players on the field for one side.
There are 11 players in a football team for either (American) football or "soccer". American football: There are 53 on the team plus a practice squad of 5. Only 11 can be on the field between the lines during play. 11different positionsin the team onthe field,plus other players sitting onthe bench. That's for "soccer", but the same answer applies to "American football", with different numbers of substitutes.
In American football, each team is allowed 11 men on the field during a play, for a total of 22 players plus the officials. If there are more than 11 players on the field for a play, the team with too many players may be assessed a 5-yard penalty and any play that occurred may be nullified (at the discretion of the opposing team). Having fewer than 11 players is not a penalty infraction.
