HistoryEdit

The stadium's inaugural match was played on December 14, 1969, when Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras beat Santo André 4–0.

The stadium's attendance record currently stands at 19,000, set on June 3, 1979 when Santo André beat Corinthians 2–1.

In 1985, the stadium hosted a Menudos band show. This event damaged the field. The Municipal Prefecture of Santo André only fixed the field a year later, due to lack of funds.

In 2005, Estádio Bruno José Daniel was used for the first time in a Copa Libertadores game. On March 10 of that year, Santo André and Cerro Porteño of Paraguay drew 2-2.
