The campus opened in 2009 as part of the major Leckwith Development, which included a new football and rugby stadium, Cardiff City Stadium, and a retail park.
In July 2015, Cardiff Council let the stadium and its grounds to Cardiff and Vale College, who further sublet the sports facilities to Cardiff City House of Sport. This lease runs for 30 years as a result of which the stadium is no longer open to the public during the day, although evening opening is unaffected.
The official opening of Cardiff International Sports Campus was on 19 January 2009, attended by former Welsh athletics star Colin Jackson.
Stadium capacity is 4,953; 2,553 seated and 2,400 standing.
The stadium includes a gym, AstroTurf pitches, meeting rooms, and offices.
It includes the headquarters of Welsh Athletics—the sport's governing body for Wales—and Cardiff Amateur Athletic Club.
