It looks like last year's partnership between The LEGO Group and Manchester United on 10272 Old Trafford was quite successful, because this year they're teaming up with FC Barcelona to release 10284 Camp Nou, which is available starting today! The 5,509-piece Creator Expert-style set is 19-inches wide and 18-inches deep and is sure to be an impressive display piece for any
soccer football fan (unless you cheer for Real Madrid). The set is on sale for $350 in the US, but if you'd like a chance to win a free copy, you can read on to learn about a contest that's underway. We also have more pictures and details about the set if you'd like to see it from a variety of angles!
LEGO FC BARCELONA CAMP NOU - CAMPAIGN RELEASE
The search is on for FC Barcelona's superfans in new LEGO competition
1st September 2021: To celebrate the launch of the new LEGO FC Barcelona Camp Nou set, the LEGO Group and FC Barcelona are searching for the club's superfans through a competition where the winners will be rewarded with the new set, a personalised minifigure in the famous red and blue football strip and a certificate recognising your superfan status.
The new LEGO FC Barcelona Camp Nou set allows you to create a spectacular 5,509-piece model that is sure to take centre stage in any fan's home. To mark the occasion, the LEGO Group and FC Barcelona are putting football fans to the test with a special quiz. Featuring 10 questions about the great football club, the quiz has been designed by FC Barcelona historians and can be taken at www.lego.com/fc-barcelona. Get all 10 questions correct and you could be in with a chance with winning.
You need to be a LEGO VIP member (sign up is free) to enter the competition and be in with the chance of winning one of the 46 prizes - one prize for each of the members of FC Barcelona's female and male first team squads. Terms and conditions apply.
The new LEGO FC Barcelona Camp Nou set is fantastically detailed. Features include the stands, pitch, team tunnel, media boxes and even the team's coach. The score board also references the club's momentous 5-0 win over rivals Real Madrid in 2010 and two of the stands proudly feature the "Mes que un Club" motto that is known by fans around the world.
Talking about the how he approached the design of the set, Rok Zgalin Kobe, LEGO Set Designer commented: "To create the Camp Nou in LEGO form was a really enjoyable challenge, from bringing the stands to life to envisaging the players walking down the tunnel to the pitch, you can almost feel the atmosphere of a roaring home game. It is an impressive build - perfect for both FC Barcelona and LEGO fans."
To find out more about the competition, sign up to LEGO VIP or to buy the LEGO FC Barcelona Camp Nou set - visit www.LEGO.com/FC-Barcelona. The set is also available now in LEGO stores at the recommended retail price of 349.99 USD / 299.99 GBP / 329.99 EUR / 499.99 AUD / 449.99 CAD
Many thanks to BZPower's Ambassador Tufi Piyufi for sharing this information with us, and thank you to the LEGO AFOLET for giving us access. Soccer stadiums made out of LEGO bricks is an interesting trend, and these sets are a lot more impressive than the Sports sets from the early 2000s. I wonder which venue we'll see next? Let us know your thoughts on the set and the new theme that seems to be developing!
