The stadium hosts the home matches of FC Augsburg and has a capacity of 30,660 with 19,060 seats and standing room for 11,034. It replaced the club's previous home stadium, "Rosenaustadion".

Augsburg was one of the official host cities of the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup and the subsequent 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup. The Impuls arena was the location of several matches during the group stage and the quarterfinals. During the FIFA-competitions it was renamed "FIFA Women's World Cup Stadium Augsburg".
