After two straight years of Lucas Oil Stadium being ranked the number one stadium experience in all of sports by Stadium Journey Magazine, what it would do for a second encore remained to be seen.
It has been a little less over a month since the final Colts game at Lucas Oil Stadium but the stadium has already made a splash in shooting for the top spot again in 2013.
Google Maps announced Friday that for the first time ever they are launching panoramic imagery inside an NFL stadium, by showcasing Lucas Oil Stadium.
When fans open up this new feature, they will be introduced to 360-degree imagery in which fans can step right through the home tunnel and out onto the field towards the end zone just like their favorite Colts players each year.
“The Colts organization is honored to have Lucas Oil Stadium selected by Google Maps to be the first sports venue featured in a 360-degree interactive photo tour,” said Colts Chief Operating Officer Pete Ward.
Other amenities included in the app, is the Colts’ locker room, the stadium’s three concourses and three separate suites—a Field Level Suite, the Quarterback Suite and a Loge-Level Suite, giving Colts fans a behind-the-scenes look at any second of the day, anywhere in the world.
In years past, the Colts have introduced several other features for fans wanting a closer look at Lucas Oil Stadium, from a ‘virtual venue’ on the team’s website to a Colts Mobile App used on game day that debuted this past season.
The panoramic imagery of the award-winning Lucas Oil Stadium will be available to more than one billion monthly users of Google Maps.
“This imagery gives us the opportunity to share our home, an award winning state-of-the-art facility, with Colts fans around the world,” Ward said.
