LEGO Old Trafford Set

The LEGO Old Trafford set is a 1:600 replica model of Old Trafford and it measures 6.5” (18.5cm) high, 18” (47cm) long and 15” (39cm) wide. This building kit for adults features several evocative details including the players’ tunnel and the statue of the United Trinity.

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.

"I think everyone has played with Lego bricks at some point in their life, however it’s still amazing to see the level of detail the Lego designers have managed to recreate in this piece. We are sure it will be hugely popular amongst Manchester United and Lego fans alike.”

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.”

The LEGO Old Trafford set will be available at lego.com from 1 February for £249.99, in time for the stadium's 110th anniversary on 19 February. The LEGO Old Trafford set falls under the ‘Creator Expert’ category - it is designed for fans aged 16 and up.
