United fan raffles off replica Old Trafford

American architect David Resnick has built a model Old Trafford stadium and is giving Manchester United fans the chance to own it by entering his charity raffle.

The miniature replica is a 1:1,500 scale of the Theatre Dreams and is complete with Munich Tunnel, illuminated Manchester United sign and includes the sounded area and landmarks.

David built the model to raise funds for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity and is donating it via a charity raffle, with tickets on sale for £10.

The US-based sports enthusiast, who estimates he will have committed over 280 hours of his personal time to build the replica, is willing to post it to anywhere in the world, so make sure to enter here!
David used photographs, Google Maps, online archive footage and Photoshop to create the 3D replica.
“I am a huge sports fan and when I lived in the UK a few years ago, I went to see a few matches at Old Trafford and realised for myself what hallowed ground it is,” David told the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity.

“It’s a ground that holds a lot of memories and a place many people hold in high esteem – so part of what I do was about thinking how I recreate that in miniature form.
David spent an average of 10 hours a day building this masterpiece for the last several weeks.
“Whoever wins the raffle will be owning something very unique and one-of-a-kind. It would be a real collector’s item for someone who is a true Manchester United fan.”

Jo Thomas, one of the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity’s Community Fundraising Officers, said: “David’s work looks incredible – I’m only sad I won’t get to the see the final stadium up close for myself."

You can enter the raffle here and the final date to buy tickets is Saturday 29 August.
