BC Place is easily recognizable from many parts of Downtown and the surrounding regions as its large air supported dome is visible throughout the city.
Completed in 1983 and built in preparation for the 1986 World Expo, BC Place is one of the most visible landmarks in the city of Vancouver with its large white roof and its location on the edge of False Creek.
With its unmistakable white cloth dome and large circular construction, the site is a popular site for events as well as a large volume of shows and exhibitions such as the Outdoor show and the Car show as a concert venue. BC Place is home to the Vancouver Football team, the Lions and has hosted many Grey Cup Canadian Football League championships.
The stadium style seating allows for over 50,000 fans to be within BC place for any given event, however, it's the unique dome that garners most of the attention as it was the first of its kind in Canada and is the largest air supported cover in the world.
As well, the BC Sports Hall of Fame is located in BC Place near Gate A, Level 300, commemorating figures in sports who have had a lasting impact throughout British Columbia and the world.
BC Place's most important role was to host the Opening and Closing ceremonies for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics - the first indoor venue ever used for the Winter games.
