World Cup Stadia

I was checking out the 2010 South Africa World Cup venues in Google Maps today and noticed that most of the new stadium now appear in Google Maps Aerial View.

I have quickly thrown together a Google Map that lets you view the new aerial (bird's eye) view imagery of each stadium alongside a video of the same stadium from YouTube.

Forgive the look of the page, I literally threw it together in 30 minutes, but I think it works OK. When Google releases the Street View imagery for South Africa (which I'm guessing will be in the next few weeks) I'll add the Street Views for each stadium as well.
