The ground has been used several times by the Argentina national rugby team.[3] A 24–16 defeat by Scotland in June 2010 was the first time Argentina had lost at the ground, after seven previous wins.[3][4]

The ground will be used once more by the Argentina national rugby team in 2014, where it will host one of two Admiral Brown Cup matches against Ireland.[5]
