The stadium was originally scheduled for completion in time for the 2006 football season, but due to owner requested changes the stadium did not open until 2007.
In the first sporting event held in the new stadium, the UCD women's lacrosse team beat St. Mary's 17-5. Aggie sophomore Patrice Clark scored the first goal. The first football game at Aggie Stadium was held on September 1, 2007, against Western Washington. The Aggies lost 28-21. Through the 2010 season, the Aggies have a record of 13 wins and 8 losses at Aggie Stadium.
The Tavernetti Bell, also known as the "Victory Bell", greets fans entering Aggie Stadium. The bell is named after Thomas Tavernetti (1889–1934) and is rung once for every point scored after an Aggie victory. With the construction of Aggie Stadium, the bell followed from its previous location at the old site on Toomey field.
