History[edit]

The stadium was proposed by Comayagua mayor Carlos Miranda with the objective of promoting athletics among young people and attracting tourists to the city.

The stadium was financed with funding from the national government, loans from the private sector, and municipal resources and collections. It was designed by the firm "Perspectives Arquitectonicas."

The stadium was completed in 2005 as a multi-use facility with capacity for 10,000 people. The stadium is used mainly for soccer games and serves as the headquarters of the Hispano Football Club, a member of the Honduran National Soccer League. The first international match played at Estadio Carlos Miranda was held in 2005, between C.D. Motagua and L.D. Alajuelense with a 5–2 victory for the Hondurans.
