Last month marked the long-awaited return of guests to BC Place, as the BC Lions and Vancouver Whitecaps FC played in front of their home fans for the first time in over a year.

The health and safety of our team members, guests, and community remains our highest priority at the Stadium, and in accordance with a recent the Provincial Health Order, BC Place requires a proof of vaccination for access to events for all guests aged 12 years and older, starting last September 13.

To ensure you don’t miss any of the action, please arrive 45 minutes prior to the start of the event to allow for the vaccine verification and other health and safety protocol upon entry.

Vaccination verification

As of September 13, guests aged 12 years and older must have one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine to attend events at BC Place. Beginning on October 24, guests must be fully vaccinated.

BC Vaccine Card required

As of September 27, only the BC Vaccine Card will be accepted for people living in BC.

The Province launched the BC Vaccine Card, a digital or printed document that shows the stage cardholders are at in their COVID-19 vaccine progress. The BC Vaccine Card allows vaccinated people to conveniently and securely show their proof of vaccination at higher-risk social and recreational events.
