Triple post but... I think the fact that there are 2 AF fields in the picture might be helpful afterall. If this place has (at least) 2 fields, then they must expect to have (at least) 2 games going on at the same time, at some point. Because of this, I'm pretty sure we need to be focussing on North America, because I don't think the sport is popular enough anywhere else in the world.

Presumably, the vast majority of american football fields will be in the northern hemisphere, so the team going south may still get the sun in their eyes, especially in northern climes in the winter.
even aside from that - say you go out to receive a pass, if you are running a wide route, you will be looking east-west to your quarterback and so will run the risk of losing the ball in the sun.
I know it isn't your rule - I am just hoping (for the sake of national pride) that it is an old wives' tale.

edit: spelling

I think it makes sense. It's not clear from what you've written if you know that they switch ends of the field mid-game. It's not perfect, but it evens things out. I can imagine that passing and running on the axis of the sunset would be kind of terrible.

In fact, I never understood why they switched sides (since the grounds presumably can be maintained/controlled at the NFL level so that one side of the field doesn't have some advantage) but this makes a lot more sense.

Is the switching ends not linked to fan support like it is in football?
As well as incase the pitch isnt completely  perfect

Actually, as I was thinking about this, that probably means it's not a school.
maybe a ymca or something...(dunno what it would be called in other parts of the world)
Looking at a ymca in Hastings NE, the fields look similar (as opposed to high school fields which pretty much all had yards marked and bleachers).

Hastings in NE, where Goldenrod is the state flower? Funny you mention that: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Hastings

Join me in my quest northwards.

Well, Hastings NE should be sufficient for any proficient Googler.

I found it easily from that info.

Aw, come on, post the answer!

Another way to be certain it's a US football field:  the distance between the two goal lines is shorter than the distance for the 100m race on the track.

Surely you can find it if you read through the thread? A lot of work has been done out on the open here...

OGMC1 on the other hand, is a different story. I want to know when other people get there with that one.

Fun fact: The Battle of Hastings did not actually take place in Hastings, rather at the site now known as the town of Battle.
