Initially known as Buenavista stadium, named after the neighbourhood, it was inaugurated on April 24, 1932 with a match between the national teams of Spain and Yugoslavia. The first goal in this stadium was scored by Real Oviedo's forward Isidro Lángara.
It was completely rebuilt for 1982 FIFA World Cup. It hosted three matches.
The capacity of the stadium was initially 22,500, but it was reduced to 16,500 in 1998 when all capacity were transformed into seated places. This was the reason to build a new stadium.
It was replaced by the current Estadio Carlos Tartiere in 2000 and was eventually demolished in 2003.
