FIFA Fan Zone Vancouver


The FIFA Women's World Cup, the largest live spectator sporting event in our country’s history is well under way and the city of Vancouver wants to help you celebrate! Located at Larwill Park, the free to enter, FIFA Fan Zone Vancouver is in an attempt to recreate the spirit of the Olympics and capture the spirit of soccer fans with matches held at the nearby BC Place. We will even be hosting the Final game!

The main area of the Fan Zone is covered with plenty of picnic tables for people to watch the game on the two big screens or special after-game musical performances that feature strong female artists.

Sponsors of the game have their own booths, like Coca Cola's Ultimate Goalie game.

 Coca Cola is also giving out free limited edition bottles of coke.

Take a picture of yourself defying gravity at Adidas booth.

You can enter a contest at Hyundai's booth as well as find some shade and seating.

The BC Sports Hall of Fame also as a booth.

There's opportunities for kids to play soccer outside.

 And also test your soccer skills.

Like trying to score a goal.

 Inside the FIFA Fan Experience structure, there are other interactive games to play.

Professional freestyle footballer and Latin American and European Champion Laura Biondo performs four times daily. She's amazing! The control she has on the football is astounding! You have to see her in action!

Other performers and stilt walkers periodically come out to entertain.

Last Saturday, June 6th was the opening of the FIFA Fan Zone Vancouver and drums and dancing marked the official start of the Fan Zone.
