The construction began in 1 January 1990, and the stadium was officially opened on 16 July 1994, when Dundee United played a Selangor FA selection in the first game of an invitational tournament, drawing 1–1. The first goal at the stadium was scored by Billy McKinlay. Other teams in the tournament were Bayern Munich, Leeds United, the Australian Olympic team "Olyroos", and Flamengo (who won the tournament).

The stadium is situated in the eastern part of Shah Alam. The Shah Alam Stadium, which consists of huge six level semi-enclosed spaces, is the largest stadium in the state of Selangor. It was the biggest stadium in Malaysia until the completion of the Stadium Nasional in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur. The frame structure is the longest free-standing arc in the world. Constructed with the latest technology, it is now a popular venue for world class sport events. The stadium was designed by a well-known Malaysian architect, Hijjaz Kasturi.

The stadium has around 5,500 car bays in parking lots surrounding the stadium. The stadium has become the major landmark in Shah Alam due to its scale and magnificent architecture. Other than sporting facilities, the stadium also has a go-kart racing circuit. Once, Universiti Teknologi MARA's (UiTM) Faculty of Performing Arts occupied a portion of the stadium as its faculty building prior to the completion of the Puncak Perdana Satellite Campus of the University.
