The purpose of the football field chart is to show how much someone might be willing to pay for a business, whether acquiring all of it, part of it, or even a single share (depending on the audience).

 

Why is it called a football field?

The bars look like yard lines on a football field, and hence the name. Also, the graph is commonly used in investment banking, and bankers like sports analogies.

 

Why use a football field chart?

The reason it’s used is to visually show what the range of values for a business are and see where, an average, a target valuation lies compared to several alternatives. It’s common to see these charts in an investment banking pitch book or equity research report.
