Women’s Olympic Qualifying Tournament (2012)

On January 27, 2012, Canada went head-to-head with Mexico for a spot at the London 2012 Summer Olympics. Canada earned a 3:1 victory on the strength of two goals from hometown hero Christine Sinclair. The team would go on to win a historic Bronze medal that summer in London — and it all started at BC Place.

Canada’s Men’s National Team vs Honduras (2015)

Canada’s Men’s National Team marked its first match in Vancouver in 11 years, with a memorable 1:0 win over Honduras in FIFA World Cup Qualifying. The intense match proved that BC Place was becoming a fortress for Canada’s National Teams.

Canada’s Men’s National Team vs Mexico FIFA Qualifier (2016)

In 2016, fans from all over the world came to watch Canada’s Men’s National Team face world-power Mexico in a FIFA World Cup Qualifier. The capacity crowd of 54,798 set a new record for the largest attendance for a Canada national team event of any sport ever held in Canada, a record that still stands today.

Canada’s Women’s National Team vs USA (2017)

The fiercest rivalry in women’s sport was reignited as Canada’s Women’s National Team faced neighbours USA in an unforgettable game at BC Place in November of 2017. Falling behind in the first half, Canada battled back in the second half to earn a 1:1 draw with the world number one ranked Americans on an emotional evening.


Canada’s national team is led by inspirational head coach John Herdman who comes to the men’s program following an incredibly successful tenure with the Canadian women’s national team program which included back-to-back Olympic bronze medals.
