At the time, the stadium’s grounds were designed in an oval shape with only one key grandstand. In the 80s, the stadium was remodelled to acquire a rectangular shape that made it well suited for rugby league and soccer, alongside the addition of another grandstand. In 2006, the stadium was renovated, and the total capacity of the Grandstand is now at 8,000 seats.
It is important to mention at this point that the stadium has hosted key matches including two of the 2008 Rugby League World Cup matches, as well as the 2013 and 2014 Pacific Rugby League International matches.
