The BC Sports Hall of Fame is one of my favourite places in Downtown Vancouver. It’s got everything I like in an attraction: A whole lot of history, inspirational stories, a Vancouver 2010 exhibit, an Indigenous Sport Gallery, behind the scenes tours, and plenty of hands-on activities. New this season, they have launched It Takes a Village, a special exhibit honouring the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Vancouver Whitecaps Soccer Bowl championship.
It Takes a Village Whitecaps Exhibit
It Takes A Village honours the 1979 Whitecaps squad that won the North American Soccer League title, and in doing so, captured the hearts and imagination of people across British Columbia.
The exhibit includes rare 1979 season artifacts, photos, archival film footage, and interactives on the greatest season in Whitecaps history – and is appropriately named, in recognition of sportscaster Jim McKay’s observation during the Whitecaps playoff run in 1979 that, “Vancouver must be like a deserted village right now.”
