Search engine giant Google is more than happy to be your guide to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, event that begins today, June 12th.

Below, I take a look at how Google provides easy access to useful information about the FIFA World Cup.


Search for “World Cup” on Google

Enter the search query “world cup” on your desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone, and Google will present lots of info to help you stay on top of the tournament: team lineups, live scores, schedules, standings, up to the minute information about attempted goals and player stats, a timeline of all major moments during live matches.

By Googling “world cup” on my desktop I can see that at 4PM on ESPN, I can watch the match between Brazil and Croatia.

Google Now Delivers the Info You Want

We all know that the Google Now intelligent personal assistant delivers the info we need the moment we need it. Football fans around the world will be glad to know that they won’t have to search to get updates on their favorite teams – Google Now can show cards with match updates for World Cup teams.

Google Trends Designed for the FIFA World Cup

Visit and you will be presented with a Google Trends experience designed to offer “a unique glimpse into what the world wants to know during the tournament”. You will be presented with a website that presents info on the teams and players, focuses on how an entire country feels about the tournament, showcases trending questions about the competition, and more.

Explore the Stadiums with Street View

World Cup games will be played on 12 stadiums in Brazil. You can explore all of them with Street View in Google Maps. It must be mentioned here that you can also use Street View to tour iconic painted streets in Brazil.
