The World Cup 2010 is almost ready to start (1 day, 11 hours and 14 minutes at the time of writing this). Google [GOOG] has decided to add some nice looking 3D tours of the stadiums used at the event.
Google Earth is used to achieve the 3D tours and allows you to add the 3D World Cup layer to the globe so you can pan around and zoom in and out of the stadium.
The 3D tours can be found over here which opens up a .kmz file for you to import in to Google Earth.
The video below shows a demo of what you can expect in Google Earth, so we recommend you go check it out now as it looks rather good!
