Property of the municipality, it is the home stadium of Zamora CF. It is equipped with both an artificial grass and natural grass surface. Its capacity is 7,813 spectators.[1]

The stadium was constructed as a replacement for Zamora C.F.'s previous field, La Vaguada, was obsolete due to its age (15 years), its reduced capacity (approximately 4000) and the general mediocrity of the facilities.

A notable match held at the stadium was a European Under-21 qualification game between Spain and Armenia on April 1, 2003, which resulted in a 5-0 victory for Spain.
