The NRL have declared the cash-strapped Titans will remain on the Gold Coast despite increasing speculation that the club would be forced to relocate to Brisbane.
The Titans revealed plans on Wednesday to establish a new base in the northern Gold Coast suburb of Coomera, with plans to move there permanently in 2016.
Gold Coast’s planned move means that the club will leave its current base in Robina by the end of October and split its operations between two places next year before settling in Coomera in 2016.
NRL boss Dave Smith told reporters he was confident the planned move from the Titans would be a successful one, with Titans board member Darryl Kelly to provide the funding for the new base.
“The Gold Coast is a key market for us, it’s a very important part of rugby league’s fabric,” Smith said.
“Darryl’s behind it and Darryl’s got a wealth of experience in these projects and I think that gives you a lot of comfort.
“It’s a facility that’s purpose built. It’s going to be in a fantastic location.
“It’s going to be something for the long term future of the Titans club and we’re really clear about that.”
