- BC Place, MLS Vancouver, Stadium Talk, Vancouver Stadium, Vancouver Whitecaps
We learned earlier this morning about Portland’s stadium upgrades that will soon be coming but what about their MLS expansion mates Vancouver? Well it turns out they probably won’t be playing in BC Place right away in 2011 but instead will be in a temporary venue.
They will (along with CFL side BC Lions) play at Empire Field’s temporary stadium as seen above.
The temporary stadium is expected to seat around 26,000, with covered stands, and will also feature luxury suites.
Yes, this is a temporary stadium. Honestly I don’t know the location of this stadium in regards to downtown Vancouver but damn this seems like a good option to have for Vancouver, even if it will be playing on FieldTurf (yes another new club coming in with that stuff).
I won’t lie either, this temporary digs looks better than some current stadiums in MLS.
