Enjoy a BC Lions Professional Football Game
Looking for something exciting to do while visiting Vancouver, British Columbia? If you like sports action, then be sure to catch a BC Lions Football Game at Under the Dome at BC Place Stadium. My daughter attended a game with friends last season, and I thought you would enjoy some of the photographs she took while at the game. 🙂
This was a regular season home game against the Edmonton Eskimos of Alberta and our home team the BC Lions. First, check out this cool short video on some of the hardest hits back in the 2011 season. Yes, this is real professional football! 🙂
The Canadian Professional Football League
The BC Lions are one of 8 teams in Canada’s only professional football league. The other teams and cities involved are …
Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Beautiful Vancouver British Columbia
The BC Lions home is in Vancouver British Columbia, which is located on the west coast of Canada. Attending a professional football game while visiting the city is just one of the many sites and attractions this city has to offer during your stay or if you are considering taking your Holidays in British Columbia and looking for things to see and do.
This football team has been around since 1954. The prize for winning the league’s Season Championship is called the Grey Cup. Vancouver has had a championship team on six occasions over the years, with last coming back in 2011.

Of course it goes without saying, with every professional football team, they must have their famous cheerleaders! The Lions dance team is known as the Felions’! 😉 Here are a few snapshots of the dancers in action during stopped play.

BC Place Stadium in Vancouver
Adding to the excitement of attending a Lions game is watching them play at the newly restored BC Place Stadium with their amazing new retractable roof. Now, fans can enjoy football and other major events all year long in an open air stadium during nice weather and comfortable closed surroundings during inclement weather. An outstanding facility for the whole family to enjoy!
From football, exhibitions, festivals and other year round events, this stadium is now perfect for them all.
Catching a professional football game in Vancouver is something the entire family will enjoy and you don’t have to be a football fan to experience this exciting live sports action. Tickets prices are very reasonable as well, unlike most other major sports events. Check out the stadiums official website that I have added below for a closer look and schedule of upcoming events.
