Good question. It’s actually one of those games you can decide yourself how long it lasts. You could easily just have a 10 minute game as a much longer one. It’s similar to American football or rugby (in the UK) and rugby is 40 minutes each way (ie total of 1hour 20 minutes). However, this is often too long when children play, so better to have much shorter games.

Alternatively you can play like Ultimate (Frisbee football) where there is not a set time, but rather the team that wins is the first to reach a set number of goals.
