The great Football resources in Google Earth


With NFL and NCAA football both in high gear, we thought we’d take a look at various football-related resources in Google Earth.

A few years back, Google showed off all of the 245 NCAA football stadiums, many of which are in 3D. You can explore them yourself using this KML file.



Another way to see them is by viewing some of the stadium collections on EarthSwoop, which allow you to fly from stadium to stadium via the Google Earth Plug-in: ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, PAC 10, SEC and the entire NFL.

Speaking of the NFL, it’s worth checking out Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. It hosted the Super Bowl earlier this year, and it’s an amazing model. If you’re looking to play some football, you can check out the Google Earth-based football game that I created a few years ago. I’m sure it could be done better with the Google Earth Plug-in now, but it’s still pretty fun.

Imagery Update: Cowboys Stadium Gets Fresh Bird’s-eye & Aerial Imagery

We’re just a few days away from Super Bowl XLV and with everyone preparing for Super Sunday, we figured at Bing Maps we’d do the same. Today, we updated the Bird’s-eye and Aerial images in the Arlington area to show off Cowboys Stadium.



For a demonstration of the imagery, check out the brief “Road to the Superbowl” video from Bing and head to to see everything Bing is doing in honor of Super Bowl week.
