A UEFA category four stadium, it has also hosted four European Cup finals, the most recent being the 2009 UEFA Champions League Final. Outside football, the stadium is used by the Italian national rugby union team and is Italy’s national athletics stadium. It also occasionally hosts concerts and events of various kinds.

In its first stages, the Stadio Olimpico was called the Stadio dei Cipressi. It was designed and constructed within the larger project of the Foro Mussolini (Mussolini Forum), which was renamed Foro Italico after the war.

For the 1990 FIFA World Cup, for which it was the main stadium, the facility was the subject of an extensive enhancement.

The Stadio Olimpico was host to five matches in which the Italian National Team took part, and the final between West Germany and Argentina. West Germany won the final match 1–0.

With the same conformation of 1990, on 22 May 1996, the Stadio Olimpico hosted the UEFA Champions League Final between Juventus and Ajax, which saw the Bianconeriprevail in a penalty shoot-out.

In 2007, a vast plan of restyling inside the stadium was laid out to conform to UEFA standards for the 2009 UEFA Champions League Final, which was held in Rome.
