On Wednesday, Google launched a new World Cup website. In a massive attempt to capitalize on the worldwide sports event, the Internet juggernaut is providing its users with unparalleled coverage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

The new website, dedicated specifically for the Cup, is designed so fans can easily access live updates and more of the latest game stats.

For instance, Google users can simply search for the phrases such as “FIFA World Cup,” and game data will appear at the top of the results page.

But it doesn’t stop there…

In an attempt to further capitalize on the World Cup, Google is also sending out instant updates and trending topics. Of course, with Google Street View, there’s no need to worry if you can’t make it to Brazil. Fans from around the world will be able to see all 12 stadiums, inside and out, where the FIFA games will take place.

Additionally, Google Now users will be able to see match lineups and all other sorts of game statistics without even having to search.

So if you’re looking for comprehensive coverage of the World Cup, you might as well just google it.
