BC Place is a multi-purpose stadium located at the north side of False Creek, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is owned and operated by the BC Pavilion Corporation (PavCo), a crown corporation of the province. When originally opened on June 19, 1983, it was the world’s largest air-supported stadium. In 2010 the stadium closed for a major renovation and reconfiguration. It reopened on September 30, 2011 as the world’s largest cable supported retractable roof stadium. It is the home field for the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League (CFL) and the Vancouver Whitecaps FC of Major League Soccer (MLS). It was the Olympic Stadium during the 2010 Winter Olympic and 2010 Paralympics and has hosted the CFL Grey Cup eight times. The BC Sports Hall of Fame is located within the stadium.
The stadium has a series of lighting patterns – depending on the event and mood in the city. Sadly, many of the local residents in the nearby highrises don’t seem to appreciate how vibrant the lights are!
