Since its inauguration, in 1938, it has been the most important sports center in the country and scenery of national triumphs, music shows; as well as the important political and social acts. However its history is also marked by the Military Coup in 1973. Between September and November of that year, the stadium turned into the mayor retention center of Chilean and foreigners.

It was declared Historical Monument in September 2003 and in March 2014 was inaugurated the “Grecia Memorial, Homage to former political prisoners”, to remember the detainees in the place during the dictatorship. The work has reproductions of drawings made by the survivor and national Art award winner, Guillermo Nuñez, during his permanence in many places of retention.
