Qld Sports minister tells Suns, Titans to win games to ease financial woes

The Queensland Government is refusing to offer any financial support to the Gold Coast Suns and Gold Coast Titans, after the embattled clubs complained about stadium hiring costs earlier this week.

Both clubs have said the cost to hire Metricon and CBUS stadium was too high, and far more expensive than stadiums interstate.

However Sports Minister Mick de Brenni told The Courier Mail the State Government had put more than $50 million into Stadiums Queensland last year alone, saving venue hirers from significant costs.

“Stadiums Queensland operates at a deficit,” he said.

He also told the clubs that their financial problems will disappear if they start winning games.
