The stadium is also used for athletics. It was built with the financial support of Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Ali al-Amoudi. The billionaire also covered the medical expenses of one of Ethiopia’s most celebrated football players, Mengistu Worku, when he was struck by a tumor. Worku won the African championship for national football teams two times with Ethiopia. He played several years for St. George, the first football club from Ethiopia with 20 top-flight league titles. Numerous Ethiopian top-flight football league matches of St. George drew tens of thousands of spectators.
