Overview

BC Place Stadium is downtown's gigantic stadium and home to the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Its claim to fame was the large air-supported dome, when it opened in 1983 and was constructed with enough concrete to build a sidewalk from this city to Tacoma, Washington. After major renovations, it re-opened in 2011 as the 'world's largest cable supported retractable roof stadium'. From 1983 to 2009 and 2011 to present, it has been the home field of the Canadian Football League's BC Lions. It also holds concerts and trade and consumer shows like the Pacific International Auto Show and the BC Home & Garden Show. The stadium also holds the BC Sports Hall of Fame and Museum.
