South Africa World Cup on Google Maps

The 2010 World Cup starts this week in South Africa.

Mibazaar has been busy creating three Google Maps Mashups to help you keep up with the latest news from the competition.

Team News Map

This map brings you the latest team news from the 32 competing teams. To get the latest news for any of the teams just click on the football shaped map markers that are placed over the individual countries.

The news comes from a Google News feed with more news provided by the World Cup Blog.

Geo-Tagged Videos
This map shows the latest geo-tagged videos from YouTube. Presumably this map will get even more interesting once the competition gets under way.

World Cup Tweets
This Google Maps mashup geo-tags the latest messages from Twitter that are about the 2010 World Cup. You can choose to view Tweets from different parts of the world by selecting from the menu on the left of the map.
