Catalans Dragons (2006-2007)
The stadium also hosted the majority of Catalans Dragons home matches in the rugby league club's first two seasons in Super League in 2006 and 2007. The Dragons have since renovated their own ground, Stade Gilbert Brutus, and now play all their home matches there.

The stadium has the name of early club fly-half Aimé Giral, who died during the First World War. Seven USA Perpignan players died during this war.
