Belfast to go global in new edition of Monopoly game

By Michael McHugh

Belfast will feature on a global edition of Monopoly after it was voted in the top 10 most popular destinations.

The city beat competitors including London, New York and Tokyo.

Belfast will be placed on the red property spaces after it came ninth in a worldwide crowd-sourced competition marking Monopoly's 80th birthday.

London, Moscow and Sydney are among other cities on the game.

Inga Norvilyte fronted the campaign to get Belfast on the board. She said: "I'm so proud to be part of it and can't wait to play the new Monopoly: Here and Now game.

"A big thanks to everyone who voted and shared my love for this great city. Millions of people around the world will now be playing a Monopoly board with the city of Belfast on it."

Belfast tourism has been boosted by attractions like the Titanic Belfast visitor centre where the doomed liner was built and programmes like the Game of Thrones series.

The game will be available to the public in the autumn.
