BC Place is a multi-purpose stadium located at the north side of False Creek, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is
owned and operated by the BC Pavilion Corporation (PavCo), a crown corporation of the province. It is currently the home of the BC
Lions of the Canadian Football League (CFL), Vancouver Whitecaps FC of Major League Soccer (MLS) and the annual Canada Sevens (part
of the World Rugby Sevens Series) as well as the BC Sports Hall of Fame. The stadium also served as the main stadium for the 2010
Winter Olympics and 2010 Paralympics which Vancouver hosted.
The stadium opened on June 19, 1983 and was built as an indoor structure with an air-supported roof, the largest of its
kind in the world upon its opening. Following the 2010 Winter Olympics, BC Place was closed for 16 months as part of an
extensive revitalization, the centrepiece of which was replacing the inflatable roof with a retractable roof supported by cables.
Once construction was completed, the stadium's new roof was also the largest of its type.
