Thank you for your answers but Where do people play football/cricket/rugby/ baseball? On a field, pitch or both?
I read people use pitch for European football (soccer according to Am E), cricket and rugby, but field for Am football and baseball, but I've also come across soccer field, and soccer pitch.
"Football Pitch" is more correct when referring to the area of play. A football field would be a field that has a football pitch in it...
If you say "field" and mean the pitch, people will still understand what you mean, but you shouldnt."
