WATT: We are not moving anywhere

Gold Coast Titans Executive Chairman Dennis Watt has dismissed reports that the club is discussing plans to rebrand and relocate to Brisbane.

“For the benefit of Titans Members, fans and sponsors, here are the facts: We are the Gold Coast Titans, and that is how we will stay,” Watt said.

“The Gold Coast is our city, and we are here to stay to proudly represent our community.

“The Gold Coast and Northern Rivers region has a long and proud history with rugby league stretching back to the game’s roots in this country. We are custodians of the game in our region, and passionate supporters of rugby league and our community.

“We are not moving anywhere, nor are we changing our name or ownership.

“We are committed to the Gold Coast, as evidenced in our current negotiations for an early conversion of our five-year extension on our lease at Parkwood, and our development application for the Titans Community Club, which is currently before Council.

“We are regularly approached by good people who want to help the Titans reach their full and successful potential, and we appreciate their support of the club.

“But while we never stop listening to interesting proposals, and will always keep an open mind about possibilities to grow and strengthen the Titans, the possibility of restructuring, relocating and rebranding the club has not been contemplated.

“Yesterday’s media speculation is incorrect.”
