Wembley Stadium Mapped Out

Thu 5th Jul 2012 | IT & Technology

Wembley Stadium has become one of the first UK entertainment venues to have their indoor floor plans appear on Google Maps.

Google have launched indoor maps for Android mobile phones in the UK and will feature Wembley Stadium as one of the first venues to feature on the new technology. Other UK locations range from train stations to art galleries and department stores with the possibility for other football clubs to upload their maps for future inclusion in Google Maps.

Visitors to the England national stadium will be able to open Google Maps on their Android mobile phone to zoom in to Wembley Stadium for the indoor floor plan to automatically appear. And where information is available, they will be able to see where they are on the map with a familiar blue dot if they’ve enabled the My Location feature.

The new feature means next time a fan arrives for an Wembley football, sport or music event, they’ll be able to locate all the services Wembley has to offer, including:

• 164 turnstiles

• 2618 toilets for your convenience

• 98 kitchens and 30 bars capable of pouring 47,000 pints in one half time break

• 688 food and drink service points on the concourses

• And even where to locate some of Wembley’s historical treasures including the Olympic torch from the 1948 Olympic Games, the Bobby Moore Statue and the World Cup Plaque from the 1966 World Cup

Anyone heading to Wembley Stadium for one of the nine London 2012 Olympic Football matches taking place from the 29 July through to the 11 August, will be able to plan their journey ahead, discover where they are going and navigate their way around the stadium from the palm of their hand.
