BC Place Stadium

777 Pacific Blvd, Vancouver, BC V6B 4Y8, Canada

BC Place Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The stadium was originally opened in 1983 and has undergone several renovations over the years to modernize and improve the facility. It is currently owned by the government of British Columbia and is operated by the BC Pavilion Corporation.

The stadium has a retractable roof that can be closed in approximately 20 minutes and is the largest cable-supported retractable roof in the world. The roof can also be opened to allow for natural light and ventilation, making it a versatile venue for a variety of events.

BC Place Stadium is primarily used for sporting events, and is the home of the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League (CFL) and the Vancouver Whitecaps FC of Major League Soccer (MLS). The stadium has also hosted many international sporting events, including the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics, the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, and the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The stadium features a unique lighting system, which allows the entire roof to be illuminated in a variety of colors and patterns. This has been used to great effect during events such as the 2010 Winter Olympics, where the roof was lit up in the colors of the competing nations.

In addition to sporting events, BC Place Stadium also hosts concerts, trade shows, and other large-scale events throughout the year. The stadium has a seating capacity of up to 54,500 spectators, and features a variety of food and beverage options, including traditional stadium fare as well as more upscale dining options.
