Originally named as "Grand Stadium" due to being the largest of the North side of Argentina, Racing Club de Avellaneda was invited to play a friendly match versus Atlético Tucumán as part of the celebration. The stadium was named Monumental "José Fierro" in honor of a well-remembered Atlético's chairman.

It was the first roof stadium in Tucumán Province and the first to have a superior stand. The structure was built of concrete. The record attendance was in 2008, during a match between Atlético and Racing de Córdoba, when all the seats were filled.

The stadium is located in the North part of the city of San Miguel de Tucumán (named "Barrio Norte"). It can currently accommodate up to 32,700 persons due to an upgrade of the facilities that included adding and extra 2,500 seats.
