1650+ Football (aka Soccer) Stadiums Around the World

[NOTE: the Football Stadiums collection was deleted by its poster, but it is still available at Google Earth Hacks]

In a thread at the GE Community a lot of football fans around the world are helping to identify and Placemark their football stadiums. Many of the placemarks have details and links to web pages about the stadium as well. Nearly 3000 downloads of the file have occurred and over 16,500 views of this thread with 160 replies. From ths picture here, you might get the impression that a few people in Europe are interested in this sport. Try out this collection of 1650+ Football Stadiums (found now at gearthhacks.com) around the world.

This is actually another interesting way to do some sightseeing in GE. In many cases where there is only low resolution photos of the stadium, a fan has created a link to a better photo from a web site somewhere. You are likely to notice other interesting things as you zoom in on different cities. Especially if you also turn on the BBS Layer.

Rather a spectator oriented form of using Google Earth for sports. But, I'm planning to write about some interactive uses of GE in sports. I've already seen some cases where the sport itself will be changed because of the ability to visualize it like never before.

    I am the author of the collection. Just a quick note to say that the total has now reached 2900 clubs/teams.

    A large quantity of clubs include links to their official web sites, and team logo's.

    I have also added links for some of the greatest players of all time.

    More are coming...keep watching.

    I can help you with stadiums in Chile, I've been working on that before and found your site. Are you interested?

    Regards,

    Unfortunately, the author of the KML file deleted his collection.
