They get rid of the areas the NFL teams usually stand in - the pitch looked normal width after that.

Also I think Cas is the minimum dimensions in length(!). There's only 3 metres or somthing between the 30 and 40m lines.

The pitch is undersized in Vegas, all four teams agreed to play knowing. NFL Games are played on 100yard by 53yard. It was still undersized using all the available outfield!

It's like 2metres narrow each side. 96 metres long post to post (longer than cas) and 64 metres wide (instead of 68metres). You can't visibly notice. When Wigan played wire we played on the actual NFL pitch - that was pretty narrow for sure.

The biggest difference to the NRL pitches that has the most effect ofn their game IMO were the short in goal areas. They looked the same as SL in goals but the NRL have massive in goals (at least it seems like that to me) so their kickers had far less margin on the in goal kicks. I doubt the pitch width had much impact at all (none of the team I saw could defend very well anyway so they were probably glad of it).
