Going downtown over the weekend, you couldn’t help but notice how weird the Vancouver skyline is without the BC Place roof. I’ve only been living here for a couple of years and I find it strange, so it must be really weird for those who have been used to seeing it since 1983.
The deflation on May 4th marked the end of an era but the start of a new one, as work began on transforming the old venue into a first class sporting stadium to host the MLS Vancouver Whitecaps next summer, along with the CFL Lions.
As a sad old anorak of many years, I love seeing stadium renovations/building taking shape. It’s been great to see the temporary Empire Stadium come together. I’d still prefer us to be playing there than BC Place (obviously Waterfront Stadium is still my first option), but it’s still exciting to be moving to the dome as well.
If you want to see how the BC Place contructions and renovations are taking shape then there’s a construction cam for all you fellow saddos HERE!
Be fun to see it in all it’s stages as MLS excitement builds.
