HistoryEdit

The stadium was originally built in 1973. Before 2004 it had a capacity of about 10,000 seats, hosting the home games of CFR Cluj, mostly in the second and third divisions of the Romanian football.

As CFR Cluj qualified for the Champions League group stage in 2008, the stadium was expanded. The expansion was designed by Dico și Țigănaș, built by Transilvania Construction, and completed in September 2008, increasing the capacity to 23,500 seats. There are also plans for further expansions.

The stadium was inaugurated with an international game between CFR Cluj and Braga, a game that CFR Cluj won with 3–1.

On 6 September 2008, Romania played Lithuania in a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier. It was the first game of the Romanian national team in Cluj-Napoca after 85 years.
