I have just started a website that combines my peculiar fascinations with Google Maps and sports stadiums.

Please take a look if you are interested:

sportingsights.com (http://www.sportingsights.com/)

Any thoughts / criticisms welcomed.

I might just change that to venue or stadium. It's a little confusing.

Some that load up first are from Live Maps, others from Google Maps. I tried to give the best resolution image when people first open the page.

My god its extensive - did you have to link every single stadium?? Or was there an automated way of doing it?

That's a fantastically comprehensive site richit. Congratulations. Must have taken you hours & hours to set up. Hope you get the revenues you deserve from it :p

Semi-automated. It is wordpress powered and they are all templated posts. Copying and pasting co-ordinates is the only real labour.

Can I suggest having a link at the top of the league stadium pages.

For example:

England

Contents:
1. English Premier League
2. The Championship
3. Football League One
4. Football League Two
5. Blue Square National
6. Blue Square North
7. Blue Square South
8. Isthmian League Premier Division
9. Lower Non-Leagues

Hyperlinking all of those so I can click and jump to the league I want, rather than having to scroll down.

Other than that, I really like it. Must have put a lot of work into it!

Noticed that when i was submitting a link the text got out of line with the boxes

That's a good idea. I might hyperlink the league on the stadium pages as well.

Gotcha.

Don't think the site is Friday afternoon viewing.

It is all-day Friday viewing. :lux:

Nice work. :p

that is bloody good, the fact you have algerian sports stadium must mean you spent a lot of time and effort on making this webpage, hope it takes off for you.

Great site. On Firefox3 on the Mac the search box was offset out of the general frame but site overall looks great.
