We get asked the question "How much paint do I need?" at least once a day. And of course our answer is usually, "It depends!" Here's a basic estimate for how much paint you need for a football field using aerosol paint
The dimensions of a "full" football field are 120 yards (360') long x 53 1/3 yards (160') wide.
We are assuming that a 4" line is being painted using an aerosol marking machine
Painting the sidelines, every 5 yard line, numbers and hash marks for a football field it will take approximately 3 cases of paint (12 cans/case) for a single pass.
If you don't paint the hashes or numbers you can get away with 2 cases of paint.
....now if you walk faster than the average person, or your grass hasn't been mowed in a month call us and we can help you adjust the estimate...
