In march 2018, the Provincial council of Zaragoza assigned the management of the plaza to the UTE after a turbulent process marked by resources that it slowed down significantly. After the award, which was made by drawing lots because the supply of Tauroejea was identical to one of the bids submitted, the claim of the latter against the county Council by the contest came to the Court of Contracts which overturned the award.

The current situation requires both the company and the owner of the arena to propose a study on the modifications required in the programming taurine.
