The stadium was used for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2020 Winter Olympics.

Despite announcements to the contrary, it has not been possible to establish a football club permanently in the stadium, so that the national stadium is only used very irregularly.
The stadium can be visited by tourists, which is the main source of income for the operators.
