B.C. Lions team facts

  • Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
  • Stadium: BC Place (1983-present; capacity: 54,500)
  • Year Founded: 1954
  • Grey Cup Titles: 6 (1964, 1985, 1994, 2000, 2006, 2011)

B.C. Lions history 

The Lions, founded in 1954, are the oldest professional sports franchise in the city of Vancouver and the province of British Columbia. The team also holds the distinction of being the first CFL Western Division team to have recorded a Grey Cup victory on its home field, initially doing so in 1994 and repeating the feat in 2011.

This franchise has been highly efficient with its title-game opportunities, winning six of 10 trips to the Grey Cup. Beyond that, BC also has a storied history of postseason success. The team boasts the second-longest playoff streak in CFL history, qualifying for the postseason every year between 1997 and 2016. Due to some recent lean seasons, however, BC now also has the longest Grey Cup drought of any West Division team (10 seasons). 

The Lions gained a new owner in 2021 when local businessman Amar Doman purchased the team from the estate of David Braley. The team has had a total of 27 head coaches, with current coach Rick Campbell leading the team.

The franchise has placed 41 players or administrators into the CFL Hall of Fame and boasts a couple of players who also enjoyed NFL success in quarterback Doug Flutie and wide receiver Mervyn Fernandez on its 50th anniversary “Dream Team” that was put together via fan balloting in 2003. 

B.C. Lions all-time leaders
