BC Lions face Edmonton for the first game in their new home!

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

CFL football has a new home in Vancouver: its old one. The fabulously revamped BC Place, traditional home of the Lions, is open for business again, and its first customers will be the Edmonton Eskimos – ready for an extra-large order of bone-crunching football, on the house.

The game, which will see the two teams face off after a 36-1 Lions victory at their last meeting, will be a chance for the Eskimos to prove themselves – and you can be sure the players are aware. The Lions, on the other hand, are eager to continue their winning streak. No matter the outcome, it’s sure to be a tense game.

Almost of equal consideration will be the experience of the brand-new stadium. Featuring more natural light, a brand-new, state-of-the-art retractable roof, vast digital screens to catch more of the action than ever before, and an incredible new sound system, the stadium is a totally new experience. The seats are even three inches wider, so don’t be to worried about hitting the concession stands.

Of course, this won’t be just another football game: the opening will be marked by a marvelous gala, featuring an incredible halftime show and internationally acclaimed recording artist Sara McLachlan to sing the national anthem.

Hey there blogosphere! My name is Andrea and I’m one of the new bloggers behind Ticket Matter blog.

wickedEver since I was little I’ve loved seeing shows on stage and I have a particular fondness for musicals. My favourite shows that have been to Vancouver so far are Spamalot and Singing in the Rain.

Each year you’ll also find me at Pacific Coliseum when Disney On Ice comes to town.

I’m looking forward to bringing you the scoop about the great shows and sporting events coming to Vancouver! Right now I’m eagerly awaiting Wicked, which will be playing all next month at the Queen Elizabeth Theater.

So what shows are you most looking forward to seeing?
