This stadium has been designed by French designer Jean-Marie Massaud and French Architect Daniel Pouzet for JVC-Omnilife.
The construction started in 2004 and has been completed in 2009. It has been delayed for number of years due to Financial problems and other issues.

This stadium resembles a volcano. The French architects exploited the surroundings of the site taking the eruption of a volcano as theme.

In the line of the concept of the erupting volcano, the stadium's white membrane looks like a cloud hovering above the volcano.
