After teasing it earlier this week, LEGO is officially taking the wraps off its new Creator Expert set, expanding its foray into sporting venues with FC Barcelona’s famous 50-year-old arena, Camp Nou. Using 5,509 pieces, 10284 Camp Nou FC Barcelona depicts the largest-in-Europe stadium that’s home to the FC Barcelona football club. Once built, the model measures more than 18 inches wide and 8 inches tall. Camp Nou follows on the heels of LEGO’s previous football arena, 10272 Old Trafford-Manchester United, which was released in early 2020. Camp Nou is available starting today in LEGO stores and online for US $349.99 | CAN $449.99 | UK £299.99.
