March 1st, 2019

BC Place and Centerplate kicked-off the 2019 sporting seasons by unveiling a host of new menu additions that will help fuel ‘Caps fans at Whitecaps FC home matches.

Carefully crafted by BC Place Executive Chef, Will Tse, the new additions will be available for purchase at Whitecaps FC matches and stadium events throughout the year, including BC Lions home games, Canada Soccer matches, and the 2019 Canada Sevens.

“Centerplate continues to re-imagine what’s possible for in-stadium food and beverage options,” says Patricia Jelinski, General Manager of BC Place. “Fans can look forward to enjoying some of the most creative and delicious menu items when they come to BC Place – options that can’t be found at any other venue in North America. Creative new dishes, locally-sourced fan favourites, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options, OCEANWISE certified seafood, and best in class in-seat ordering technology will all be on offer this year.”

New culinary creations on the 2019 menu include Crispy Shrimp Tacos, available at Steveston’s Fish & Chips stand, Butter Chicken at Bombay Kitchen, a gluten free Fiesta Burrito Bowl (vegan without sour cream) at Beast on Fire and The Outrageous Burger, available at the Lionsgate Grill. With “early bird specials”, exclusive patio party specials and monthly specials such as the Rainbow Grilled Cheese, there’s something for every fan at BC Place.

“Centerplate at BC Place is excited to present our new menu, filled with food and beverage options that honour traditional stadium food and highlight British Columbia’s rich culinary history and diversity,” says Paul McArdle, General Manager for Centerplate at BC Place. “With an internationally inspired range of flavours, and ingredients produced and sourced locally where possible, guests at BC Place are in for a treat this year.”
