It also has hosted the National Capital Region F.A. Division 3 League.UMak has a grand stand, light towers, and a rubberized track. However the stadium has poor quality pitch. It is reported in 2012 that the football venue has no basic herringbone drainage system and the soil is garden-variety soil which fails FIFA standards of six layers of six layers of sand, soil and topsoil. The Philippine Rugby Football Union has offered to install a drainage system for free but the offer was not accepted.The stadium was assigned as the training ground of the Thailand national football team during the group stage of the 2016 AFF Championship. The Thai head coach criticized the hosts for the poor quality of the pitch before their very first game of the tournament and the long grass in the pitch had to be trimmed before the Thais began their training session.Kaya F.C.–Makati, who are set to participate in the inaugural edition of the Philippines Football League, announced in January 2017 that they have made the stadium as their home ground.
