I attended the 102nd Grey Cup game here this past November. It certainly beats sitting outside in the freezing cold that's for sure. The stadium itself is very beautiful and the seating is comfortable. On the way in I was searched by a security guard. I asked him what he was looking for and he replied drugs and alcohol. I...

Attended the Grey Cup - walked to BC Place from condo - easy to get to and the tix have your designated gate on them, so you minimize the wandering around. Inside the food selection is limited even by stadium standards - few beer selections - and everything is premium prices. The VIP boxes are really close to the public... More

I had a terrific time at the CFL Championship football game at B.C. Palace in Vancouver, Canada. The stadium is a great place to watch a game (Calgary 20, Hamilton 16). The Grey Cup festival before the game was outstanding with plenty of different vendors and prizes to be won. The weather outside the domed stadium was cold, however, inside... More

Grey cup, 50,000 fans in and out with security check efficient and not jammed. Good sight lines even from the 400 level. Surprised at cleanliness of washrooms without huge lineups. Large screen is not large on end zone side which is an annoyance. A comfortable, clean large city stadium. Downtown location is a big plus. Walking distance from main hotels.

We arrived in Vancouver on a Friday night to stay at the Sandman and realised this glorious structure was next door and it was gearing up for a game.

I used to hate going into this stadium on hot summer days. It didn't seem right. Especially since the summers are so nice in Vancouver. Now the roof can be open. Close for the football games in November when the rain comes. Go Lions!

Hi David H! Thanks for sharing your experience of visiting BC Place - both before, and after the revitalization in 2011. We agree, the stadium is much more comfortable for fans now that the roof can open and close. We hope that you'll have a chance to join us again next summer! More

BC Place is a fantastic stadium. We watched the Whitecaps play Dallas and it was a great experience. The big screen is amazing and you find yourself drawn to it. The atmosphere of the fans is incredible too, especially as the Whitecaps were winning for all of the game. The staff were polite when we were talking with any of... More

We went to see BC Lions v Toronto Argonauts. The stadium itself is really interesting, much bigger than I expected. I have never seen Canadian or American football before, so we went just for the experience. It was fun and we got really into it, cheering for the local team, who sadly lost. Reasonably priced tickets available so well worth... More
