Google has added a host of major sporting venues to its collection of Street View tours, which have so far taken users on virtual visits to parks, natural wonders and museums.

Street View has already gone to the White House, oceans, famous ski resorts and important TV studios. Now it's added a range of major sports arenas to its range of 360-degree Street View tours.

Unlike Google Street View's other collections, such as its World Wonders Project and Oceans, there isn't a named gallery for the sports venues. But Google has listed a number of new locations in a blog.

NASCAR fans can now take a tour around the Homestead Miami Speedway while NFL fans, or more specifically, Seattle Seahawks fans, can take a peek at the Century Link Stadium from the vantage point of a player on the field.

If you're the soccer type, Street View can take you on a stroll through the Colorado Rapids' home turf at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

Others venues it points to in a blogpost include the the Verizon Center in DC, the stadium used by the Washington Wizards, Washington Mystics and Georgetown Hoyas. The other is the AT&T Center in Texas, home to the San Antonio Spurs and San Antonio Rampage.

Sports venues are one of the types of places to which Google, via its partners, will send out photographers for a free shoot.

Others locations include airports, museums and national parks. As it notes in a support page, operators can request a photo shoot and Google will work out what type of camera equipment, such as a Trekker backpack, and vehicles would best suit the location.
