With Rosso's promotion from the Japan Football League to the J. League Division 2 in 2007, KKWing is expected to play a role in Rosso's ascendancy.

The stadium has been announced as one of the venues for 2019 Rugby World Cup which will be the first Rugby World Cup to be held in Asia.[1]

Effective 1 February 2017, the stadium adopted a new name as Egao Kenko Stadium えがお健康スタジアム (Egao Sta えがおスタ as an abbreviation) by 4-year naming rights contract.
