Sorry no one has been able to help you w/this.
Do you have any oval shaped pans? That would be a start; then just carve a bit from the ends to make it more pointed.
Other than that bake a sheet and using a paper pattern, cut the shape. If you put the cake into the fzr for about an hour it iwll be easier to carve.
You want it *very* cold, but not fzn solid.
Oh take the cut away cake & mix w/b'cream; pile it on top to help get the rounded shape you need.

You could also use a sheet cake and make the football field alone, or put the football in the center of the cake.

I made ine like that for my son. I'm not the best decorater, but it didn't turn out too bad.
