The construction began on March 18, 2009, where the Mexico City Mayor, Marcelo Ebrard, was present.[2] The place where the Arena is located used to be the Old Ferreria Cattle Ranch many years ago. It is an 8 hectare land. KMD Architects Mexico was in charge of the design of the Arena along with AVALANZ Group. Construction companies Grupo Garza Ponce, Corey and ADIPPSA are responsible for the development.[3] It is the most up-to-date Arena in Mexico City, the biggest and it is the first arena in the city to have its own parking lot. On November 17, 2010, there was an event that took place in the early construction of the Arena which was called '300 days'. Guillermo Salinas Pliego, head of AVALANZ, promised to finish the project in 300 days. He added "It looks difficult but, the Monterrey Arena was the same and it was finished in nine months". He also talked about the idea sent to KMD Architects for the design of the Arena. He wanted it to "be astonishing on an urban level. Like an icon of the city".[4] The Arena was opened officially with a concert by Mexican singer Luis Miguel on February 25, 2012.

For the construction 5,000 tons of structural steel, 25,000 tons of reinforced steel and 100,000 cubic meters of concrete were used. 225,000 square meters of construction built on an 8 hectare land. The Arena is 45 meters high. It has 2 heliports, a parking lot with capacity of 5,000 cars, 124 luxury suites, 650 security cameras, 850 LCD screens and a capacity of 22,300 people depending on the event. One of the most distinctive things about the Arena are the outdoor LED screen, which has an area of 6,200 square meters, and the indoor screen in the centerhung, with an area of 700 square meters, making both of the screens one of the largest indoor and outdoor displays in the world. Also, 450 meters of digital rings can be seen inside. All of the LED displays are provided by Daktronics.

On February 24, 2012, one day before the official opening, Marcelo Ebrard unveiled the Arena's inauguration plaque. He spoke about the benefits of the Arena, one of them being the 2,500 permanent jobs and the development of Azcapotzalco. On the other hand, Guillermo Salinas mentioned that "this Arena built for the people in Mexico City will modernize the current entertainment infrastructure, because the last place built for that kind of purpose was the Sports Palace Dome, which was built in 1968".

Zignia Live promises the best shows in the city, given the alliance with Feld Entertainment. Shows like Disney On Ice, Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus and Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam will take place on the Arena during 2012.

Additionally, the NBA has expressed interest in having a team in México, potentially in this arena.[5] On December 4, 2013, a regular-season game between the San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Timberwolves scheduled at the arena was canceled when a fire from a generator malfunction filled the building with smoke. As a result, their rematch would instead be played at the Target Center.[6] However, the NBA would continue to hold games in exactly the same arena since then, with the most recent showing coming on January 12 & 14, 2017 with the Phoenix Suns playing against both the Dallas Mavericks and the San Antonio Spurs respectively. The Suns would lose 113–108 to the Mavericks, but win 108–105 against the Spurs.

The most attended event so far has been the fight between Juan Manuel Márquez and Sergey Fedchenko.

The most attended event happened on June 14, 2017 which was a religious reunion of the church The Light of the World which the Apostle of Jesus Christ Naason Joaquin Garcia attended. With an attendance of 28,500 inside the arena and more than 5,000 in the parking lot.
