The World Cup fever is on and as we all get set for the kick-off, of the mega event in Brazil, Google is doing its bit to ensure that you are not left far off the action. Unless you have the pricey ticket to the South American country to watch the biggest festival of football live, chances are you will be joining the likes of us on the couch and catching the FIFA World Cup 2014 live on the television.
However, on television it is not really possible to get a full look at what the venue where the games are being played or how the streets are lit up. This is where Google has jumped in. Thanks to it’s Street View feature you can now take a virtual tour of all the 12 major stadiums which will be hosting the games just to have a better idea of the venue. Not just this, you can take a walk along the streets adjacent to the stadiums as well to soak in the carnival atmosphere. And not just Marcana or Sao Paolo Stadium, Google has also brought along turn by turn navigation as well as indoor maps to more than 100 important venues across Brazil for those who are traveling for the tournament.
