Empire Field to open 5 days before B.C. Lions first exhibition game

When will it be ready?

Scheduled completion date is June 15, five days before the Lions’ preseason home opener. The stadium will be home to soccer’s Whitecaps to start MLS play in 2011 with both teams returning to B.C. Place Stadium later that year, though the Lions as yet do not have a lease with its landlord, B.C. Pavilion Corp.

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
