LEGO Football Stadium

“Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a team sport played between two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball. The game is played on a rectangular field with a goal at each end. The object of the game is to score by getting the ball into the opposing goal. It is played by 250 million players in over 200 countries and dependencies, making it the world's most popular sport.” (Wikipedia)

Well, there couldn´t be any better introduction to my new project than this. Yes, ladies and gentleman, what are you seeing is a real LEGO football stadium!

As a huge football fan (black and yellow fan most of the time) I always admired the architecture and complexity of each modern stadium used now by many teams in the world. Some of them are big, some are huge and unfortunately there is not easy to adapt them to “the LEGO World”. In this construction I tried to combine some real elements with the small world and design a playable stadium which can be built by everyone.  

The best part of this project is that all stands are built using the same element. I´m not sure this is the right word to describe it, module or assembly could work better but anyway – both stands  have this element in common:

Number of pieces: 249

The ground have around 200 pieces together with floodlights placed on 6 green 16x16 plates. For stands i useed 6 grey 8x16 plates. 

The roof is built using a structure similar to many real stadiums, like Signal Iduna Park or Bialystok City Stadium. The pieces that make the roof itself shouldn’t be very heavy and instead of 4 beams I think the structure won´t collapse even with only 2 beams. 

Floodlights give also an authentic view over the stands and if you are a real football enthusiast it´s easy to get in front of your eyes the magic of World Cup or UCL matches.
