The news comes courtesy of Eurobricks user VanIslandLego, who apparently reported the rumour to YouTuber Brother From Another Brick. Given the same user was behind the initial reports of 10276 Colosseum and 10274 Ghostbusters ECTO-1 – both of which have now materialised as official sets – the idea of a new LEGO stadium may be more than just wild speculation.
If it does turn out to be true, it would indicate that 2020’s 10272 Old Trafford has sold well – at least well enough to generate a follow-up set. It’s not yet clear whether the new stadium will also revolve around football (or soccer, if you prefer), or another sport, like American football, hockey or basketball.
In fact, the word ‘stadium’ is pretty much all we have to go on at the moment, but precedent suggests it will at least be a microscale model, and likely a large, expensive direct-to-consumer set as a result. Remember, though, this is still just a rumour, regardless of the source – and as such, should be taken very lightly until we receive official confirmation from the LEGO Group.
