The stadium has hosted many matches during various Rugby League World Cups. It served as the temporary home for the Stade Français rugby union club, starting in 2010–11 and running through 2012–13, while that club was building a completely new stadium at the site of its traditional home, Stade Jean-Bouin. It also hosted a Stade Français home match in the Paris derby with Racing Métro in the 2009–10 season.
The stadium has an athletic track that hosted the 1994 and 2002 IAAF Grand Prix Final and the 2003 European Youth Summer Olympic Festival. The stadium was scheduled to host the 2020 European Athletics Championships but that event was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
There is an indoor sporting arena called Salle Pierre Charpy that is located under the stadium. The capacity of the arena is 1,850 people. It is currently the home arena of the French Pro A League professional volleyball team Paris Volley.
In May 1968, Charléty made the news for a nonsporting event: on 27 May, the meeting of the Union Nationale des Étudiants de France, one of the most important of the protests of that month, took place, attracting between 30,000 and 50,000 people. The crowd, led by Pierre Mendès-France and Michel Rocard, shouted "Ce n'est qu'un début, continuons le combat!" ("This is only the beginning; let's keep up the fight!")
