Empire Stadium was built for the 1954 British Empire Games. It was used for 30 years as the home of the Canadian Football League B.C. Lions before the Lions relocated to BC Place. The field was temporarily resurrected during a 2011 re-fit of BC Place and is now replaced with two smaller community sports fields.
