Vancouver's two main sports and entertainment venues are BC Place Stadium and GM Place. They are located side-by-side on the southwest edge of downtown at the end of Robson next to False Creek and Chinatown.
BC Place Stadium is the home of the BC Lions Canadian Football League team. The stadium was completed in 1983 and was Canada's first domed stadium (Montreal's Olympic Stadium was in use earlier, but the roof was not finished until 1987). BC Place will host the 2010 Winter Olympics opening and closing ceremonies.
Next door is GM Place, home of the Vancouver Canucks NHL team. It opened in 1995, and will be home to the 2010 Winter Olympics ice hockey tournament.
This is the home of BC Lions of the Canadian Football League (CFL). If you want to see the Stadium (thtrough a window), you have to take the tour of the BC Sports hall of Fame and Museum, see the other tip.
At the BC Sports Hall of Fame you can find an exhibition about the athletes and teams of British Columbia. They start the history from 1890 and it goes to today. There are so many pictures and atrributes that are displayed. You can think of medal, passes of athletes, jackets, basketballs...

This beautiful 60.000-seat stadium is the home base of the BC Lions (playing in the Canadian Football League). There are also a lot of other activities held here. What makes the stadium so special is its roof: it's held upwards by huge fans.
BC Stadium is the home to the BC Lions. This is where Canada plays their variation of their neighbour's football.
BC Stadium though has more to offer to the sports tourist. Inside the stadium is the BC Sports museum.
It may be small but it provides a more than adequate history of sport in Canada.
The museum also has some great items. I'm guessing they don't even realise how significant some of it is. For example a cricket bat signed by the great Don Bradman.
The world's largest air-supported stadium. Home of the CFL's BC Lions and year round venue for major concerts, trade and consumer shows, and special events. To book a group tour call 604-661-7362, or join a walk up tour, running June - September, Tuesday and Friday only at 11:00 am and 1:00 pm.
A great stadium to watch the game. Of course like most stadiums beer, food and everything is more expensive. Its a fun place to go and check out the CFL.
This stadium is vast, it sits on the banks of the creek and has a vast span to its roof.
You have to see the larger view of this picture to appreciate its size.
If you're looking to see a concert, or the BC Lions CFL team, then head to BC Place Stadium. It's located next to the Cambie Street bridge in downtown Vancouver.
