Celebrating 110 years: Old Trafford gets its own LEGO® set
For the first time ever, Manchester United fans can now build and showcase a unique and authentic LEGO® model of the ‘Theatre of Dreams’.
Manchester United and LEGO® fans alike can now build Old Trafford brick by brick. The 3,898-piece LEGO Creator Expert model is a spectacular tribute to one of football’s most iconic stadiums and makes for a true collector’s item that is bound to take centre spot at home or the office.
The model is a true celebration of the passion for the game shared by fans all over the world, paying special homage to Manchester United fans. Developed particularly for fans aged 16 and up, the high attention to detail makes this LEGO model of Old Trafford so special. The 1:600 replica model features several authentic details, including the United Trinity statue and the Munich memorial clock.
Building this set is sure to be a nostalgic experience for Manchester United fans while also providing a rewarding building experience for LEGO fans. The building instruction includes information on the stadium and its rich heritage and history, as well as the designers that have brought the set to life.
“To create Old Trafford in LEGO bricks was a tremendous design challenge for the team, and we couldn’t be happier with the result,”said Michael Psiaki, LEGO Design Master.
“The 110-year-old stadium provided us with so many important locations, features and stories to tell as we constructed this model. We are excited for our fans to be able to experience all of that history and attention to detail as they construct and proudly display this iconic stadium.”
Kick-off is on 16 January 2020, when the model will be available directly from LEGO Retail Stores and www.LEGO.com exclusively for LEGO VIP members, with general availability beginning February 1 2020, in time for the stadium’s 110th anniversary.
