Vancouver's main sports arena is home to two professional teams: the BC Lions Canadian Football League team and the Vancouver Whitecaps soccer team. Also used for international rugby sevens tournaments, major rock concerts and a wide array of consumer shows, the renovated stadium – with its huge, crown-like retractable roof – also hosted the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
