Soccer City Captured by Google Maps Street View
Google Maps street view as explained in my previous article “Google Maps Street View in South Africa” has arrived in South Africa just in time for the world cup 2010, as I predicted.
Below you can take a look at what Soccer City South Africa looks like in Google Maps street view, just wait for it to load and then zoom in and around the stadium.
Ever dreamed of standing inside a World Cup Stadium goal? Well now you can, simply navigate to the goal and look around. Soccer City is amazing, inside and out. Google maps street view will allow you to take your own virtual tour of FNB soccer city stadium.
The stadium was not complete when the pictures were taken but you get a general idea where everything is. The inside did look a little more complete than the outside though.

I believe this is the first virtual tour by Google of a world cup stadium. Just having the Google Maps street view in South Africa is a wonderful achievement long worth the wait. Other stadium views include Peter Mokaba in Polokwane and Moses Mabhida in Durban.
