Google Maps is giving soccer fans a chance to virtually step into the World Cup stadiums. With only a week left until the iconic soccer tournament literally kicks off, Google couldn't have unveiled its new addition to street view at a better time.
Google Maps provides street views of places all over the world, but they have never allowed online users to achieve inside views. In agreement with Brazil World Cup authorities, they have made it possible. Seeing the insides of all twelve stadiums creates hype and a more interactive experience for those who can't physically be in attendance.
“Whether you’re watching from the comfort of your couch or packing your bags for Brazil, Google Maps is your ticket to the games,” said Google Street View's program manager Deanna Yick in a blog post.
