BC Place Stadium History

Ever since BC Place Stadium in Vancouver first opened in the early 1980s, this has been a venue that has had a little bit of everything, from prominent concerts from superstars to a steady string of Canadian Football League games that routinely bring in fans by the tens of thousands. It is the largest event facility of its kind in the province and has hosted mover 30 million people since beginning operations in 1983, making it a staple of the local entertainment scene for more than three decades at this point. BC Place Stadium has held plenty of amazing events over the years, and that's not something likely to slow down any time soon as they home to the BC Lions of the CFL as well as the place where music lovers expect to see some of the top concerts of the day.

Originally constructed in preparation for the 1986 World's Fair, Expo 86, the original structure contained the world's largest air-supported domed stadium, which was later replaced by a retractable roof. Although the arena was built partly to be a place to hold some of the most intense sporting events in North America, the facility's first event was an address by Pope John Paul II. The arena has also seen appearances from other important guests including their Royal Highnesses Prince Charles and Princess Diana who officially opened the World's Fair in 1986 and Michael Jackson who performed there several times. No matter what type of entertainment you're looking for in Vancouver, BC Place Stadium is likely to have something for you.


BC Place Stadium Events

BC Place is home to several sports teams that bring thousands of visitors to the arena every year. The BC Lions of the Canadian Football League provide fans with all of the non-stop sports action they can handle when they come out to cheer on their favorite football team at the arena. And the Vancouver White Caps FC of Major League Soccer provide all of the thrills and chills of a professional soccer experience in this state-of-the-art facility, making it one of the most popular sports venues in all of British Columbia.

The stadium has not only been the site of numerous battles between professional soccer teams, but it has also been the site of many other exciting events including Major League Baseball exhibition games, NFL exhibition games and NHL classic tournaments. And the stadium isn't just about sports as it also hosts some of the most exciting concerts and live musical performances in the country. One look at the calendar and you will see plenty of different sports and concert options, making BC Place Stadium the place for live entertainment in Vancouver.


Trivia

Did you know that the BC Place Stadium held both the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympics?

When the whole world was watching Vancouver, Olympic officials thought the perfect place for the major ceremonies to bookend the popular sports and cultural events of the Olympics was the BC Place Stadium, and it provided the perfect backdrop for memorable opening and closing ceremonies.


Fan Experience

When two amazing teams take to the field for a highly anticipated game, there are few sporting events that can hold a candle to the atmosphere that you'll experience in the crowd, as CFL games are routinely packed with passion and energy you can't find anywhere but the stands. Dating back all the way to the Ancient Greeks and Romans, people have been pouring in to see unbelievable spectator sports, and it doesn't get much better than seeing world-clash athletes clash on the gridiron in front of tens of thousands of fans. For the non-football fans, however, BC Place Stadium still has plenty of other options, from other sports and speaking engagements to some of the most highly anticipated concerts of the day.
