In 2007 the stadium was selected as a venue for the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, and to comply with FIFA standards, its facilities were improved, its capacity was decreased from 20,930 to 18,125; and all seats were covered by a roof (from about 80% previously). The athletics track was removed to enhance spectators' enjoyment of the on-the-pitch action. The stadium was re-inaugurated on November 5, 2008.
