Are you one of the lucky few to be heading to Phoenix for the Big Game? If so, we have some new Bing Maps that will help you navigate your way to, in and around University of Phoenix Stadium.

Let us show you to your seats
Navigating a large venue like University of Phoenix Stadium—home of the Arizona Cardinals, and host this year for both the Sunday’s game and the Pro Bowl—can be a daunting task. To help find your way, we’ve updated our Venue Map of the facility to include each level and section:

Going to an event like Sunday’s game can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Heck, half the fun may happen before and after the game and outside of the stadium. We recently sent one of our Bing Streetside collection vehicles to Glendale, home of Sportsman’s Park and University of Phoenix Stadium, to capture the sights of a venue getting ready for the throngs of fans:

Whoa! Not a job I would want! Finally, if you plan to drive to the event, be sure to browse around to see which roads have been blocked off.

Have you ever wondered what the pilots of the Met Life blimp get to see as they circle endlessly over a sporting event? Well, our final update to Bing Maps for Sunday’s game includes aerial 2D and 3D imagery of University of Phoenix Stadium and the surrounding area. For a true “Blimp’s eye view” check out the stadium in 3D using the Bing Maps Preview app for Windows 8.1:
