If you can’t make it to South Africa for the World Cup, you can at least take a virtual tour of all the stadiums before you watch the 3-D action.

Google has a 3-D tour of all 10 World Cup stadiums and the nine host cities on Google Earth or Earth View in Google Maps. You can also see Street View images of seven of the 10 stadiums.

The stadiums available in street view include Soccer City in Johannesburg, Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane and Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

The 3-D tour offers views of each stadium and flyovers of the host cities. Plus a drumbeat. Fans curious about this weekend’s England-U.S. match should start with Royal Bafokeng Stadium, above.
