People would remember 2020 as the start of the COVID pandemic, but football-enthusiast LEGO collectors might remember something else. That was the year the LEGO Creator Old Trafford – Manchester United set (10272) came out. Camp Nou – FC Barcelona (10284) followed it in 2021. Whoever thought up releasing major football/soccer stadium replicas on LEGO Creator Expert was a genius. Not only were they gorgeous constructs, but they also offered room for extra stuff such as gifts-with-purchase items. LEGO’s football-stadium set fans must’ve been hyped by October 2021 rumors of the 2022 entry: Real Madrid’s home ground. It’s been confirmed.
The Brick Fan has it that LEGO has officially listed Real Madrid – Santiago Bernabeu Stadium (10299). It’s the third of their massively magnificent football stadium series on Creator Expert. LEGO plans to have the set’s launch coincide with two milestones. The year 2022 sees Real Madrid’s 120th and the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium’s 25th anniversaries, respectively. Like its predecessors, this set is accurate in layout detail and CF branding. Creator Expert 10299 is of the same price as Camp Nou (10284), and will release March 1. Let’s have the LEGO Shop official product listing elaborate further:
