FC Mika played their first game in the stadium on 8 June 2008 against Kilikia FC. Mika won the match 1–0 with Stepan Hakobyan becoming the first ever goalscorer of the club at their new stadium, when he scored the winning goal at the 81st minute of the match.

On 5 November 2011, the FC Mika Museum was opened within the complex.[2]

On August 28, 2014, due to the accumulated debts of the owners, the ownership of the stadium was transferred to the Government of Armenia for AMD 9.045 billion (US$22 million).[3]

The stadium is part of the Republican Complex Center for the Developments of Sports run by the Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs of Armenia, including the Mika Sports Arena, an indoor fitness centre, martial arts school, table tennis hall, mini-football grounds with artificial and natural turf, as well as many other facilities.[4]
