"Once you've signed up for this campaign you'll get a couple of things to help you stand out more during the games. When people search for places to watch the games we'll highlight businesses that've flagged themselves as viewing locations (both on Google Maps and Google Maps for mobile) and you'll also get a special football badge on your Place Page," Google writes.
