It was built during Carlos Ibáñez del Campo government in 1929.

In 1960, the stadium was practically destroyed by the Valdivia earthquake, but the rapid reconstruction financed by the municipality did that the ground was chosen as one of the venues to held the 1962 World Cup where hosted all the games of the Group C as well as one during the quarterfinals and semifinals respectively.

In 1991, Sausalito returned to international football, after appearing as one of the four venues in the Copa América of that year, alongside Santiago, Valparaíso and Concepción.

On 19 July 2012, President of Chile Sebastián Piñera announced a reshuffle to the stadium to host the 2015 Copa América and the FIFA U-17 World Cup of the same year, which started during his government and finished few days before the Copa América during Michelle Bachelet government.
