LEGO House reveals world’s biggest brick-built football

The LEGO House has revealed its latest display piece as the world’s biggest football made from bricks, just in time for a sporty confrontation between Denmark and Germany.

From June 2 until July 11, The LEGO House in Billund will be home to this enormous and surprisingly not-round model. A total of 173,600 2×2 bricks were used in the creation and applied by staff at the house whilst stuck in lockdown. Even LEGO House CEO Jesper Vilstrup contributed to the giant ball.

A video provided by the destination recounts the construction of this creation with the elements applied to a metal frame, making the final display hollow like a real football.

“The football design is the iconic football that everyone can recognise,” said Experience Manager Søren Hansen Hinge. “We could have used the design from the European Championship, but I’m not sure everyone would recognise it as a football, even though it looks great.”

At two and a half tonnes and over four metres tall, the model is sure to draw the eye of visitors of the LEGO House now that it has reopened following the COVID-19 lockdown.

If you’re planning on going soon you might also be able to see the nine winners of the latest LEGO Ideas contest on display. You’ll also get to experience the renovated Robo-Lab mission.

LEGO has been a part of my life ever since I was young. It all started when my brother passed down 7657 AT-ST to me. It’s guided me through my early years, through school and eventually through my degree in journalism. I still have all my collection proudly on display, including my many NINJAGO sets, my favourite of all the LEGO Group’s themes. Outside of Brick Fanatics I am an avid gamer and enjoy a good game of Dungeons & Dragons.
