CBUS Super Stadium is the new name of the Gold Coast Titans home ground at Robina, replacing former naming sponsor Skilled. CBUS Super will sponsor the ground for the next five years as they look to strengthen the fund’s brand in Queensland.
In the clubs official statement, CBUS Super Chairman, former Victorian Premier Steve Bracks is excited about the opportunity to having the ground named after their fund.
“So we are delighted to be able to take advantage of this unique opportunity to name the Stadium at Robina the CBUS Super Stadium which will strengthen our brand in the Queensland community and beyond.
“Our take up of this unique opportunity of naming the Robina Stadium, Cbus Super Stadium, further cements our brand in Queensland and we look forward to a long and mutually successful partnership with Stadiums Queensland, the Titans and the local community,” said Mr Bracks.
Newly appointed Titans CEO Graham Annersley has welcomed the new partnership with CBUS Super.
“Having the financial backing of companies like CBUS is critical for any major sports facility and importantly gives Titans members and supporters the opportunity to enjoy a state-of-the-art facility right here on the Gold Coast,” said Mr Annesley.
Earlier in the week Penrith Panthers announced their stadium would carry the Sportingbet name. This follows on from Parramatta’s announcement in the off-season that Pirtek would sponsor their home ground, and Canberra’s named after GIO. Brookvale Oval, Leichhardt Oval and Auckland’s Mount Smart Stadium remains one of very few grounds without any sponsored name attached to their venue.
