BC Place is a multi-purpose stadium located at the north side of False Creek, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Opened on 19 June 1983 as the world's largest air-supported stadium, it is owned and operated by the BC Pavilion Corporation (PavCo), a crown corporation of the province. The venue has a spectator capacity of 54,500.

Construction of the venue started in 1981, and was built in part as for the opening and closing venue of the Expo 86 and in part to attract a never realized Major League Baseball team to Vancouver. Since 1983 it has been the home for the Canadian Football League (CFL) side BC Lions, and has also been home to the Vancouver Whitecaps of the North American Soccer League in 1983 and 1984, and Vancouver Whitecaps FC of the Major League Soccer since 2011. It was the Olympic Stadium during the 2010 Winter Olympic and 2010 Paralympics and has hosted the CFL Grey Cup eight times. The BC Sports Hall of Fame is located within the stadium. From April 2010 to September 2011, the stadium is closed for renovations, with a new retractable roof being installed.
