Default Sunny Football game but LOTS of noise C+C please

I took this pics about two days ago.
Sunny day, lots of action, playoffs and unfortunately LOTS of noise.
Can anyone tell me the reason

Pictures would be nice. If you under expose you will still see noise.

I'm curious as to why you chose to stop the lens down so much? f/8 and f/6.7 (according to the EXIF you posted).

Canon 40d.
Im not sure if I had the hotshoe flash on or not, but "flash: 16" was part of the pic info; maybe is not relevant.

I was shooting on Tv priority. Maybe that's why I got f/8 f/6.7

For sunny weather, go manual set AWB, F4, 1600, iso400, set contrast to -1 , which should play well with white. If that's too bright, drop the ISO. If it's underexposed, drop your shutter speed to 1250 or 1000.

you shot into the sun. put it at your back and put your iso as low as you can to reduce graininess.

Looks like you're fighting yourself...in sunlight, you have all the light you'll ever need!So your ss should be no slower than 1/1000th...there's no need for it. Open you aperture as far as possible. ISO is to be set as low that will still keep from underexposure. WB set to the sun setting.(One less thing for the camera to figure out.)
Shoot away!
Good Luck!

I guess I didn't think ISO 500 was high enough to get all those grains in a sunny day...

I guess everyone agrees to low ISO (less than 500) / Hight SS (over 1000)...

Arta - Where they underexposed and you lightened them in PS? That will bring out the noise. ISO 500 on a 40D should produce clean files. Shoot in AV, set your lens as wide open as possible and use the ISO to get desired SS. You might have to dial in some exposure compensation. I shoot into the sun all the time, sometimes you have no choice, you just have to learn how to set your your camera to do it.

Dublin, GA? I have a lot of relatives there.
