It was used mostly for football matches and hosted the home matches since 1932 to 2004 of the former city teams. It was initially closed in 2004 when Stadio San Filippo opened and it was reopened since 2010–11 season to host the home games of the new town club of S.S.D. Città di Messina that plays in Serie D.
On June 5, 1982, the stadium has hosted a Euro 84 qualifier between Malta and Iceland because Malta's own stadium in Gżira was not up to scratch. Malta won the game 2–1 in front of a crowd of 1,271 spectators.
