Who chooses the music to play at a BC Lions game?
Our game day manager and our DJ collaborate on the music playlist for the season. They try to select music that will appeal to as many fans as possible and will add to the enjoyment of the game. BC Lions players will sometimes make song suggestions, but ultimately the decision rests with the production crew. If you have a song suggestion, feel free to e-mail it to us at and we would be happy to take it into consideration.

Why does the on-field announcer sometimes tell me to be quiet when I'm trying to cheer on the Lions?
Our players take a lot of audio instructions on the field prior to each play. When the Lions are on offence, fans are encouraged to keep noise to a minimum to allow our players the ability to communicate effectively. Conversely, when the opposition is on offence, we encourage our fans to be at their loudest possible to help make it as difficult as possible for the opposition to hear their play calls.

Can I send a birthday greeting to a loved one during a game?

All birthday greetings must be submitted 72 hours PRIOR to game time. Any requests that are received later unfortunately cannot be included.
