The stadium was built and opened in 1972. It was used in Bosnia and Herzegovina‘s first match, a friendly played against Albania in 1995 with the final result being a 0-0 draw. The stadium is considered a “curse” for foreign national teams, due to the fact that the Bosnian national team usually wins or rarely loses their home games at Bilino Polje stadium. In a period stretching from 1995 to October 2006, Bosnia went undefeated at home in around 15 games played in Zenica. The city of Zenica had to wait another 5 years (1995-2000) before the next match of the national team was played at the stadium. This match was also a friendly, this time against Macedonia, with the final result being a victory for the home side 1-0. The Bosnian national team never lost on this field until the Euro 2008 qualifier against Hungary.
