The facility was renamed John Brother MacDonald Stadium after the long-time local coach and gym teacher at New Glasgow High School died in 2004, prior to which it was known as the New Glasgow Stadium.

In 2013, it was announced that the stadium would be closing to help pay off the Debt of the newly built Pictou County Wellness Centre. The building remains vacant and has not been demolished.
