It is the home stadium of San Pedro Sula-based C.D. Marathón, the second oldest team in the nation, founded November 25, 1925. The stadium has a capacity of 5,500 spectators. The project, which was scheduled to be finalized in its entirety by 2007, was rescheduled to 2009 due to financial issues. The stadium is named after C.D. Marathón's current president and part owner Yankel Rosenthal, who started building the stadium, making C.D. Marathón the first and only Honduran football club to own its own stadium.
