In July 2015, Cardiff Council let the stadium and its grounds to Cardiff and Vale College, who further sublet the sports facilities to Cardiff City House of Sport. This lease runs for 30 years as a result of which the stadium is no longer open to the public during the day, although evening opening is unaffected.
The original completion date of the main stadium building and floodlighting of the running track was moved back from May 2008 to early September 2008.
The £5.7million project took 46 weeks to build.
Stadium capacity is 4,953; 2,553 seated and 2,400 standing.
The stadium includes a gym, AstroTurf pitches, meeting rooms, and offices.
