HistoryEdit

The stadium was built at the former ground of the Camp d'Esports del M.I. Consell General. Construction started in 2013 and finished in 2014.[3]

The stadium is the home of the Andorra national football team and the Andorra national rugby union team. The first official match was a 1–2 defeat to Wales valid for the UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying Group B, played on 9 September 2014, after the 3G artificial pitch passed UEFA inspection a week before the match.[4]

In August 2015, the National Government and FC Andorra agreed that the club would play in the Estadi Nacional the two first months of the 2015–16 season, until the works in the Camp de la Borda Mateu finish.[5][6]
