BC Place re-opened in September as the home of Major League Soccer’s Vancouver Whitecaps and Canadian Football League’s BC Lions following a $563 million redevelopment which aims to extend the life of the facility by at least 40 years. Having initially opened in 1983, BC Place’s first renovation phase to enhance basic facilities was completed ahead of Vancouver’s staging of the 2010 Winter Olympics, when the stadium hosted the opening and closing ceremonies, along with medal presentations.
