The Gold Coast Titans have reaffirmed their commitment to the city, with the club signing a long-term deal to continue playing at C-Bus Super Stadium.
The new agreement with Stadiums Queensland will give the Titans the option to continue playing home games at Robina until the end of 2027.
“We are somewhat spoilt to play at Cbus Super Stadium, with the venue still one of the premier rugby league facilities in the country,” Titans CEO Steve Mitchell said.

“We want to be playing home finals footy and we want to bring the NRL Premiership trophy back to Cbus Super Stadium.
The Titans will play their first home game in Round 2 when they take on the Broncos with a huge crowd expected.
Mitchell is confident fans will turn out in droves this season, with hopes high that the Titans will be finals contenders this year.
“In those last five games that we won at the tail end of the year, on capacity at the time under the restrictions with COVID, we sold out those games and we still had waiting lines at the back of that.”
Today’s announcement has been slightly overshadowed by the ongoing speculation that Melbourne Storm legend Cameron Smith was closer to donning Titans colours.
The speculation grew on Tuesday after Smith was spotted training by himself in Mudgeeraba.
With just three weeks until the start of the season, Smith is yet to make an announcement about his future, despite already relocating to the Gold Coast and enrolling his kids in local schools.
But Mitchell is urging everyone to cool their heels.
“It’s never been looked at as an option,” Mitchell said.
“The media speculation around Cam coming to the club has been a wonderful PR campaign for us. It’s media exposure you couldn’t buy so I’ve got to be grateful for that.
“And it’s in really good intent. The population, our fan base and the media are very excited about the future for us and that speculation is endearing. We’re very grateful.”
