BC Place

3 years ago

BC Place is located at 777 Pacific Blvd., Vancouver.

For nearly three decades, BC Place has been a centerpiece for the City of Vancouver. Originally erected as the worlds largest air-supported stadium in 1983, the stadium has now been reinvented and modernized. The stadium has again made history, as it is now a year-round open-air facility with a brand new cable-supported retractable roof the biggest of its kind in the world.

The renovated venue is the new home of Vancouver Whitecaps FC. This renews a long history for Whitecaps FC at BC Place which began during the days of the North American Soccer League. The Caps played the very first sporting event at the original stadium, beating arch-rivals Seattle Sounders FC 2-1 in front of a crowd of 60,342 on June 20, 1983. In total, the club played 41 matches at the old BC Place (including eight as the 86ers). The last such match was a friendly versus David Beckham and LA Galaxy on November 7, 2007, with 48,172 fans packing the stands.
