With the release of the model football stadium, Lego has kicked off a competition to win one of the new sets and a personalised minifigure.
Fans of FC Barcelona can now get their hands on a new Lego model of the famous Camp Nou, and enter a competition in which they could win one of the sets, a personalised minifigure in the famous red and blue football strip and a certificate recognising their superfan status.
The new Lego FC Barcelona Camp Nou set comprises 5,509 pieces and is fantastically detailed, including the stands, pitch, team tunnel, media boxes and the team coach. The score board 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.
The competition involves fans answering 10 questions about the great football club in a quiz designed by FC Barcelona historians, to be in with a chance of winning. Entrants need to be a Lego VIP member (sign up is free) to enter the competition to win 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.
Jordi Balsells, director of Barça Licensing & Merchandising, commented: “The Camp Nou is one of the symbols of FC Barcelona. We are therefore very proud to get the opportunity to jointly create this reproduction of the stadium with the Lego Group that fans will be able to build from bottom to top and which represents the home of all Culers”.
Rok Zgalin Kobe, Lego set designer, added: “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.”
