LEGO Manchester United

Are you a Manchester United fan that likes LEGO?

If so, then you’re in luck.

That’s because LEGO are set to release an incredible 3898-piece model of Old Trafford to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the iconic stadium.

Fans will be able to build their very own Theatre of Dreams complete with intricate details such as the players’ tunnel and the United trinity statue.

The LEGO Old Trafford set will be available at lego.com from 1 February, in time for the stadium's 110th anniversary on 19 February.

But make no mistake. This is no kids toy.

The Old Trafford set comes under the ‘Creator Expert’ category meaning that you have to be very experienced to be able to complete the 1:600 replica model.

It measures 6.5” (18.5cm) high, 18” (47cm) long and 15” (39cm) wide.

It will set you back a pricey £249.99 though.

Of course, it comes with building instructions as well as information on the stadium and its history.

Sean Jefferson, Manchester United’s director of partnerships, said: “Our Old Trafford stadium is as iconic as Manchester United itself and we are proud to be able to bring it to life in Lego form.

Michael Psiaki, Lego design master, said: "To create Old Trafford in Lego bricks was a tremendous design challenge for the team, and we couldn’t be happier with the result.

"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.”
