Sporting events in August

What goes on in August? We are arriving mid-August and my husband would like to see an event in the fantastic stadium. I take it that its not the ice-hockey season then, but what else might be on?

Check the following websites: http://www.gvrd.com/annual_events/index.html and www.canucks.com/gm/events.asp?sectionID=202. August seems to be a quiet month in GM Place.

#1) North American football played indoors at BC Place stadium

#2) European football(soccer) played in a small outdoor facility. Probably not as good as some of the games you might have seen but not too bad

Ticketmaster is the place to view events listings and you can also purchase tickets.

Enjoy your visit and welcome to Canada!

If he just wants to see the inside of the stadium, there are often many events going on inside both GM Place and BC Place through the summer months. BC Place holds events like the "Boat Show", etc, while GM Place is a popular concert venue. That's another consideration.

The Boat Show happens in February.
