As found on "Wiki Answers" - may or may not be accurate.

The following are the ''Official Dimensions of a Soccer Playing Field'' as set out by FIFA:

Length: minimum 90 m (100 yds) maximum 120 m (130 yds) Width: minimum 45 m (50 yds) maximum 90 m (100 yds)

International Matches

Length: minimum 100 m (110 yds) maximum 110 m (120 yds) Width: minimum 64 m (70 yds) maximum 75 m (80 yds)

If this is true, there is no reason both sports couldn't play at the same field. (Again...I am unsure about the soccer and football....hmmm football and football seasons...haha, and whether there would be significant overlap.) However; that is something the leagues can work on and sort out.

I don't watch professional soccer all that often, but having a pro team in town might change my habits.
