Hello amigos!

A player was sent off and Arsenal has 10 player on the pitch/lawn now.

Dad told me to mow the lawn/pitch before going to the school.

Which is the correct word in these sentences above?

Thanks,

Best regards

    Hi!

    It´s an area of grass; It sounds to me :eek: ( Both of them).

    My query is as folows; on a sport field or in a park, Which of them must I employ?

    I hope to have made myself understood:eek:, I´m not fluent in english, sorry!

    Cordially

    A 'pitch' would only, as far as I know, be used in the context of a sports field. I don't know in what ways, however, as sports-speak is not my language. :)

    In the case of your second sentence, it is highly unlikely that one's father would ask one to mow a sport's field before school. It is far more likely the father would ask one to mow the yard around one's house - provided it's light enough to see.
