“Electric Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I've been a Whitecaps FC season ticket holder since BC Place underwent its $500 million+ renovation. I must say, this venue makes football matches absolutely ELECTRIC. With the way that BC Place configures its seating, there isn't a bad seat in the house. All seats are large, cozy and comfortable. The high definition TV hanging from the centre of the field is monstrous (it is the second biggest in North America); therefore, you won't miss a second of the match! All food & drink is surprisingly well priced for a stadium. Best of all, the curtains that cover the upper bowl hold in the crowd noise, making every match lively and fun. A+ experience every time. Go Whitecaps FC!

“For all the money spent on renovations, it takes forever to get thru the gates”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have been to BC Place twice since the mega million dollar make over. Thought with replacement of the inflated dome and removal of the airlocks, that ingress to the facility would be improved. I think it is worse than ever, taking well over 40 minutes for both The Wall and McCartney concerts.
