Yard vs meter

Yard (yd) is a unit of measurement, commonly used in the United Kingdom, United States and Canada. The international yard measurement was defined in 1959 as being 1 yard = 0.9144 meters (exactly). The yard unit is mainly used in sports like football, gold and cricket (used to measure the field length). Also, yard has multiple variations which are used in different countries and areas (square yard, cubic yard, big yard, etc).

Unlike yards, the Meter unit of measurement (or Metre for non-US countries) is part of the "Metric system" and a popular unit that is used globally. The international definition is 1 meter = 1.09361 yards. The meter is newer than the yard unit, and before that the standard unit of measurement in Europe was yards and inches. That's why yard measurements (that do not belong to the "metric system") are still adopted in the UK and US.
