How can I add more lines to the Sprint goal field in JIRA?

We are working with share Sprint, each team has its own board and Sprint goal.

Currently the Sprint goal field is defined as a single row.
since we are working with share sprint we either need to define more than 1 row , or to have the ability to define a Sprint goal per board

A sprint goal per board does not make any sense.  You want a sprint goal per sprint.  Which means a single field.

There are 5 teams each working on different domain of the product. we decided to work with a shared sprint so we can have a clear start-end date that all teams can be aligned with. Each team has its own Sprint goal. this is why I need a Sprint goal per board

If you need a clear alignment, you should have a clear single goal for the sprint too.  Not different ones.

You now have a place where five teams have up to five different goals to achieve with the same thing at the same time.  What happens when the goals are not identical?  People have the wrong priorities for others, and you end up with conflicts.  You either need your teams to work together for a single goal, or separate out and work towards their own goals without the potential to compromise others.

Instead of telling us how to do our sprints and sprint goals, can you suggest if there is a solution or an alternate to have multiple lines within the sprint goal statement? Forget whether there is 1 team, or multiple, a single small statement for a sprint goal, or multiple clearly articulated pieces within the broader goal of the sprint. Why should it be a bother for the tool?

The sprint goal could be:
- Deliver X functionality:
  o so that Y can do this
  o so that Z can do that
