Saw the NHL Heritage Classic. The new roof gives the whole stadium a lighter cleaner atmosphere. I think BC place is much improved over the dark dismal cave it used to be.

what a great stadium. The open roof is great during the summer months and really added to our Lions game we caught while in Van.

Have you ever been in a building that you instantly feel the energy of it. This place has it and it must be experienced for one's self. From the outside you think well thats a pretty neat building. You walk up and see this very unique monument to Terry Fox that you absolutely have to take photos of and pose... More

What a jewel of a stadium and one that Vancouverites can be proud of. Its been updated and the improvements are very impressive. Great for watching a BC Lions football game with great views from every seat, easy access to amenities and washrooms and polite, helpful staff to answer your questions.

My family and I attended a BC Lions football game on October, they were playing against the Edmonton Eskimos, and yes they did win that game! It was our first time in the stadium, and we were so impressed with what we saw. I felt that it was well marked and easy to find the section that we given. The... More

I've watched both the BC lions and the Vancouver Whitecaps play here. I've been to stadiums in New York, Ireland and throughout the UK, and this easily measures up with top marks for view, ease of access, toilet facilities and catering. I have to say, the Whitecaps decision to not use the upper tier was wise, they fill the lower... More

The main problem with the stadium is it's just too big both for the Lions & the Whitecaps,the only occasions it will fill-up are Grey Cup finals & maybe a concert once in a while. The retractable roof is also a joke, when open one sees a little sky obstructed by cables & the video screens/scoreboard, all in all a... More

Lovely arena, well located and very friendly atmosphere. Went to watch the Whitecaps play whilst on holiday and really enjoyed it. The roof was covered which helped as there was a storm playing out outside the arena. Sadly the 'Caps lost but was a great experience and to see how a football crowd from another country treats a game.
