The stadium is the home ground of the American Samoa national football team. It featured in the highly-rated 2014 film Next Goal Wins, which documents the team's attempt to achieve their first-ever international win. The stadium is shown to be the team's training ground in the build-up to the 2011 Pacific Games and the 2014 World Cup Qualifiers.
The stadium has one small covered stand on the north side of the pitch, which is in-line with the half-way line.
The FIFA Goal Project had enabled a new pitch and new administration offices to be constructed in 2007, but the stadium was severely damaged by a tsunami in 2009. After undergoing a rebuilding project, the stadium was re-opened by FIFA President Sepp Blatter in a ceremony in January 2011.
