The ground has been used several times by the Argentinian Nation Rugby team.[2] A 24–16 defeat by Scotland in June 2010 was the first time Argentina had lost at the ground, after seven previous wins.[2][3]

The ground will be used once more by the Argentine National Rugby team in 2014, where it will host one of two Admiral Brown Cup matches against Ireland.[4]
