It is used mostly for rugby and football matches. The stadium has a 22,000[1] capacity for football and rugby matches. In 2005, the stadium was the site of a stampede that killed two people during a match between South African side Kaizer Chiefs and Madagascar's USJF Ravinala.[2] It was also the stadium of the 2007 Indian Ocean Games.

On June 26, 2016, during a free concert, a bomb detonated in the stadium, killing two people and injuring around 80.[3]
