Have you ever attempted a lego American Football stadium?

I would really like to do this, I just don't know how to go about it. I don't have enough $$$ to go buy all of the Lego CMF football players, either. :( Suggestions? Oh, and if you have built a full-size one, could you post a picture? :) Thanks!

    Have you ever attempted a lego American Football stadium?
    No.


    How to build a Lego American Football Stadium:

    1. Buy Lego bricks.
    2. Build American Football Stadium with them.
    3. Done.
    Oh, and if you have built a full-size one, could you post a picture? :) Thanks!
    A full-size one? Given that an American Football Field is about 100m long, I'd say a full-size model of one would use a few too many bricks to be viable...

    Here's a more modest version that I think is an excellent representation of Heinz Field. I hope to build my own one day...

    Definitely a nice micro scale version.

    I'm currently amassing as many orange bricks as I can to build a minifig version of The Swamp (GO GATORS!), but it won't hold close to the 90,000+ that can fit in the real stadium. I'm only looking to add seats for a couple of hundred minifigs at the most. Obviously, that means it won't be accurate, or close to it, but it will have some of the subtleties and fit into my city layout.

    I will say this...MOST. CHALLENING. MOC. I. HAVE. ATTEMPTED. It's large even with only a 200 or so seats and the planning alone is mind numbing.

    Inspires me to someday try my hand at a microscale banked oval racetrack!

    That all sounds fantastic except for the Florida Gators part.

    You could take a look at Steve Price's Legorena. This is one of the photos I took of it at last years "Bricktastic" show.

    That's set up as a concert venue, but it's still an awesome stadium!

    Thank you very much @BooTheMightyHamster It's now retired and stored in the back garage in readiness for a comeback tour in a couple of years!
    BTW, this took me 25+ years so @ethanjwall, you've got plenty of time

    @BooTheMightyHamster: Thanks! I think if (most likely when) I do this, I could use his design just taking out the bottom bleachers because that's not big enough for a football field :oP
