Vancouver’s BC Place Stadium

BC Place Stadium

BC Place is the home venue for the Vancouver Whitecaps soccer team and BC Lions Canadian football team. It also hosts concerts and other major events.

If you like professional sports, then this is one of Vancouver’s best places to visit at game time.


Playdome is an indoor carnival midway attraction that takes place at the stadium from March 20th until the 28th in 2020 (so during the Spring Break school holidays). It’s a terrific event for children and youth and highly recommended.

BC Place Stadium

BC Place Stadium is located in downtown Vancouver at 777 Pacific Boulevard. It can be accessed from Pacific Boulevard, but also from Beatty Street near Georgia and Robson.

Built for the Expo 86 world’s fair, used for the 2010 Olympics (including its opening ceremonies) and then significantly renovated just a few years ago, BC Place is an impressive building with a capacity of about 54,500 people.

It has a retractable roof, which makes it nice on warm sunny days, and is home to the BC Sports Hall of Fame and Museum, which is of interest to sports enthusiasts and costs about $15 for adults and $40 for a family of four. A couple of years ago BC Place Stadium hosted the FIFA Women’s World Cup Soccer Tournament.
