With a new corporate sponsor officially renaming what everyone still calls GM Place in 2010, you’ll likely hear both names bandied around. Whatever the moniker, the newer of Vancouver’s two downtown stadiums hosts the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League. Game nights, when the 20,000-capacity venue heaves with fervent fans, are the city’s most exciting sporting events – you’ll enjoy the atmosphere even if the rules are a mystery. The main hockey venue during the 2010 Winter Olympics and the home of a large Canucks team shop, this is also a favored arena for money-spinning stadium rock acts. Behind-the-scenes tours take you into the hospitality suites and the nosebleed press box up in the rafters.
