The stadium was supposed to be inaugurated in May, 2010, to commemorate the 200 years of the May Revolution. Delays, however, have meant that the stadium was inaugurated on March 16,[2] 2011 with the Argentina – Venezuela match which Argentina won by a score of 4–1.[2] That year, the stadium hosted group stage and quarter-final matches in the 2011 Copa América.

In 2012 and 2014, it hosted the final of the Copa Argentina.

The stadium was one of the two venues of the 2013 South American Youth Championship and hosted Group B in the first stage.

In 2018, it again hosted the Argentina National Football Team, this time for a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification (CONMEBOL) match against Colombia, which Argentina won 3-0.
