Guests at BC Place required to show proof of full vaccination starting this week

UPDATE: Beginning April 8, 2022, BC Place will no longer require vaccine verification.

Guests are now required to show proof of full vaccination when attending events at BC Place, starting on October 24.

The new protocol kicks in this coming Wednesday when Vancouver Whitecaps FC play host to Minnesota United FC in a midweek matchup with massive MLS Cup Playoffs implications.

Currently in the midst of a three-game road swing, the BC Lions are back home in Vancouver on November 12 for a Friday night clash versus the Calgary Stampeders.

The 'Caps and the BC Lions each have two regular season games remaining at BC Place this year - with both home clubs in a middle of a chase for a playoff spot.

The health guideline was originally announced by the provincial government last August.

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.

Full vaccination verification

In accordance with a recent the Provincial Health Order, BC Place requires a proof of full vaccination for access to events for all guests aged 12 years and older.

BC Vaccine Card required

The official BC Vaccine Card is the only proof of vaccination accepted for people living in BC.
