The Santiago Bernabéu Stadium was revealed this morning by the LEGO® Group. It is the third socc… um… football stadium in as many years. 2020 saw Old Trafford, while 2021 brought FC Barcelona Camp Nou. The latest addition to the series represents the home of Real Madrid. Additionally, it celebrates the team’s 120th anniversary, and their 75th in the stadium itself.
Excerpt from the official press release:
This interactive and immersive set features many specialized details which make it an accurate replica of the stadium from both up-close and afar. A lift-off roof and the ability to open up the model by “splitting” it in half, encourages users to engage with the many details of the set — from the pitch with the famous grass pattern, the venue’s iconic four towers, the goals, tunnel, dugout, scoreboard, banners, stickers, stairwells, iconic Real Madrid C.F. branding, and more.

The Santiago Bernabéu Stadium is similar in scale to the previous stadiums. In this case, it measures 44 cm long by 38 cm wide, and 14 cm high. Stadium sets are not really my thing… neither is soccer. However, soccer is apparently the most popular sport in the world. Consequently, I bet there are loads of fans out there chomping at the bit for this set. Are you one of them? What do you think of the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium revealed today?
