Soccer fever is in the air as Brazil is set to host the FIFA World Cup in just seven days. For those of us who can’t make it all the way to the South American country, Google Maps is giving us a virtual glimpse into the action with the addition of all 12 stadiums that will be used during the tournament on Street View.
Few days ago, i share with us a “Quick Guide To Avoid 2014 FIFA World Cup phishing scams“, but in this article post, we will be take a virtual tour around Brazil and see the Maracana, Arena de São Paulo, Mineirão, Estádio Nacional de Brasilia, Arena Castelão, Arena Fonte Nova, Estádio Beira-Rio, Arena Pernambuco, Arena da Amazônia, Arena Pantanal, Arena das Dunas and the Arena da Baixada stadia.
To kick off the tournament, starting today, Google Maps has also added Brazil’s colourful and vibrant painted streets, a Brazilian soccer tradition where the city streets are painted every four years for the World Cup.
In addition to the stadiums and painted streets, images from hundreds of sites across Brazil, including Iguaçu National Park and St. Michael of the Missions, are also now available on Google Maps. If what you see in Brazil whets your appetite, you can also explore new Latin American imagery in Peru, Chile, Colombia and Mexico.
And if you’re lucky enough to have a physical ticket to Brazil, don’t forget to pack Google Maps for mobile. Exploring the sights and culture of this year’s football tournament has never been easier with Street View in Google Maps.
You can try it on Google Maps now.
Happy Virtual Touring!!!!! 🙂
