Wish you could sneak into the locker room of your favorite National Football League (NFL) team or see what it’s like to run out of the tunnel on game day? Google announced on Friday it’s bringing NFL stadium imagery to Google Maps, starting with an inside look at where the Indianapolis Colts play. By searching for Lucas Oil Stadium — with keywords such as, appropriately, “Lucas Oil Stadium” or “Colts Stadium” — in Google Maps on your web browser or app (iOS or Android), fans are treated to a 360-degree interactive photo tour. Although Lucas Oil Stadium is the only NFL venue working with Google Maps for now, the company said it will likely roll out stadium imagery with more franchises in the future. “A few football enthusiasts on the Google Maps team thought it would be neat to publish imagery of NFL stadiums on Google Maps,” a Google spokesperson said.
