Empire Field (at Empire Fields with Empire Stadium around it) will host the BC Lions‘ home opener this Sunday. I’ll be heading over for a preview tomorrow and will also be at the game on Sunday however my camera-toting husband got a bit a a preview earlier this week. Although it’s temporary (aka TEmpire Stadium) and made of scaffolding, he says it’s simply “gorgeous” – what do you think?

Update June 18, 2010 I attended the media preview at Empire Field today. John was right, it’s pretty stunning once you’re inside the temporary stadium. I snapped a few shots of the facilities, the outdoor concession, and other features around the field.
The President of PavCo (B.C. Pavilion Corporation) said, “all we are missing is a corn field and Ray Kinsella,” which made me giggle. I’m not sure it’s Field of Dreams but it’s a pretty spectacular structure.
