The stadium, which is also sometimes used for concerts, was one of the 1978 FIFA World Cup venues. The Jaguares and Vélez Sarsfield use the venue for home games. They are among the first sports clubs from Buenos Aires with 100,000 followers on their main social media page. The Jaguares were founded in 2015. They played their first-ever Super Rugby home match at the Estadio José Amalfitani, with 19,000 people in attendance. The Jaguares lost the match. The club signed Agustín Creevy, the first Argentine rugby union player with 100,000 followers on his main social media page, in 2016. Vélez Sarsfield, the other tenants, won the South American championship for football clubs in 1994 for the first time in their history. The same year, they won the Toyota Cup, the former world championship for football clubs.
