BC Place is one of the easiest landmarks to spot on a map of Vancouver aside from Stanley Park. It’s an icon of our fair city, opening in June of 1983 and again in 2011 following $150 million in major renovations, it has hosted everything from the CFL, MLS, and the NHL Heritage Classic to Madonna, U2, the Olympics, Women’s World Cup, and Rugby Sevens. Thanks to the BC Sports Hall of Fame, you can go behind the scenes to get unique views of this legendary venue.
The history of BC Place, and overall sport in BC, can be found at the BC Sports Hall of Fame, right inside the stadium doors at Gate A. This important attraction is full of history, interactive displays, games, the hall of inductees, and galleries including tributes to some extraordinary Canadian heroes like Terry Fox and Rick Hansen.
All Access Tours of BC Place
This spring and summer, the BC Sports Hall of Fame is hosting a new All Access Experience providing an enhanced visit and behind the scenes tour of BC Place. You’ll visit the media lounge, premium suite areas, team locker rooms, and have field access.
On the tour you’ll learn things like why the seats have a colour pattern, how long it takes the roof to open and close, what is the pitch made of, player history, and other tidbits of information about BC Place as a building and venue. You’ll tour the media lounge and premium seats, team locker rooms, and if available, you’ll be able to get onto the field for a unique viewpoint of the stadium.
The All Access Experience begins and finishes at the BC Sports Hall of Fame. The All Access Experience tours are available to the general public on specific dates and times. There are 20 spots for each tour time slot and the cost is $20 per person (plus tax). Group rates are available at $13.50 (plus tax) per person for groups of 10 or more. If you would like to take a group of 10 or more people on the All Access Experience, please contact the BC Sports Hall of Fame to reserve space for your group.
