Titans Members and fans will feast on a smorgasbord of big-time footy at Cbus Super Stadium in 2020, with a host of the NRL’s biggest teams locked in to visit the Gold Coast to take on the Titans.
The NRL Premiership draw for 2020 has finally been released, and the Titans will get an early test of their premiership mettle with assignments against six of last year’s top-eight teams – including the two grand finalists – to open the season.
While it will be baptism of fire for new coach Justin Holbrook as he takes control of the Titans, Gold Coast Members and season-ticket holders will be delighted with the number of high-calibre matches on the menu at Cbus Super Stadium this season.
The South Sydney Rabbitohs will make an overdue return to the Gold Coast in 2018, as will last year’s giant-killers the Canberra Raiders and Manly Sea Eagles.
The Titans’ traditional rivalry clashes against the Brisbane Broncos and North Queensland Cowboys are also locked in, as is a home assignment against the Melbourne Storm, which could be the last time we see Storm skipper and league legend Cameron Smith playing on the Gold Coast.
The premiership season gets underway with an away assignment against the Raiders at GIO Stadium in Canberra on Friday 13 March.
The Titans then return home to take on another of 2019’s surprise packets, the Parramatta Eels, on Sunday 22 March.
In Round 3, the Broncos roll into town for the first of the Queensland derbies, taking on the Titans on Sunday 29 March.
After an extended stint on the road, the Titans will return home in Round 7 to take on the Wests Tigers in Cbus Super Stadium’s first taste of Friday night footy for the year on 24 April.
In Round 8, the Titans play at “home” away from home, as all 16 NRL clubs head to Brisbane for Magic Round at Suncorp Stadium.
After playing in the very first Magic Round match in 2019 against the Sharks, the Titans will be the curtain-call for the 2020 version, taking on the Panthers in the final game of the weekend on Sunday 3 May.
The Warriors always draw one of the crowds of the year when they play at Cbus Super Stadium, and the boys from across the ditch will this year arrive in Round 10 to meet the Titans on Saturday 16 May.
In Round 12, the Bulldogs will be looking to repeat their upset win of 2019 when they take on the Titans at Cbus Stadium on Thursday 28 May.
The second of the Queensland derbies arrives in Round 14 when the Titans host the Cowboys on Friday 12 June.
Away matches, the bye and representative season mean it will then be almost a month before the Titans play at Cbus Stadium again – but it will be worth the wait as Smith and Craig Bellamy bring the Storm to town on Saturday 11 July.
Titans fans will then savour back-to-back blockbusters at Cbus Stadium, with games against traditional giants the Dragons (Round 20, Saturday 1 August) and Wayne Bennett’s Rabbitohs (Round 21, Saturday 8 August).
The Titans will then be back on the road before returning home for the final two games of the season – against Canberra (Round 24, Sunday 30 August) and Manly (Round 25, Saturday 5 September) rounding out the year and hopefully acting as a final warm-up before the semi-finals.
Titans Memberships for the 2020 season are now on sale, so don’t miss out on securing your seat for a brilliant season of rugby league at Cbus Super Stadium.
