Vancouver’s BC Lions CFL Football Team

The BC Lions are one of nine teams in the Canadian Football League (CFL), which is similar to the American football equivalent.

The main differences between the two football leagues are the facts that the Canadian field is larger, Canadian teams have 12 players instead of 11, and in the Canadian league there are three downs whereas in the US there are four. Other than that, the games are very similar.

The Lions are the oldest active professional sports team in BC as they joined the CFL in 1954. They’ve won six Grey Cup titles with the most recent coming in 2011.

BC Lions Tips and Advice

Below are a couple of tips to help you make the most out of your BC Lions game experience.

TIP #1: Parking can be expensive downtown. If money is an issue, cheaper parking can be found at some of the parkades on Richards Street between West Pender and Georgia, although on game days they increase their prices. If convenient, public transit is a good option.

TIP #2: Season pass holders get discounts at a number of pubs in the area. Show your season tickets and get between 10% and 20% off on food orders (although for one place the discount doesn’t apply on game days). See BC Lions Pub Discounts for details.
