    I’m at Mount Nathan so a 15/20 minute drive works for me!

    I think both of those are still on the drawing board. Can’t see either being private to be honest, though time will tell.

    Gold Coast Titans owners, the Kelly and Frizelle families, have today delivered on the promise of the addition of a community asset that formed a large part of their proposal when purchasing the rugby league club.

    As part of that proposal and central to the future of sustainability of the club was the establishment of an external business model, with the creation of the 'Titans, Oxenford Community Club'.

    Following an in-depth and detailed analysis, researching the viability of a Titans licensed venue, a parcel of land, located in the northern corridor of the Gold Coast, at Oxenford and currently owned by the City of Gold Coast was identified.

    Architectural plans, and designs for the 'Titans, Oxenford Community Club', have been produced for approval with the state of the art, 2,500 square metre facility to be positioned in an easily accessible and visible location within the 22,000 square metre site.

    The designs submitted for approval make maximum use of the flood prone location whilst retaining a green corridor and the facility will see more than 80 jobs created in the local area. The club's owners are committed to building a community centre which provides a significant boost to the local area whilst also creating a host of exciting new opportunities and a place locals and visitors to the region can be proud of.

    The Gold Coast Titans understand there may be some disruption to the Coomera Junior Cricket Club, while some school sport will also need to be relocated. The club is committed to working with local council to ensure positive outcomes are achieved for all parties.

    The 'Titans, Oxenford Community Club' will be operated as a separate, not for profit entity, with a team of four Directors appointed to provide the best level of operational governance, it will share just one common Director with the Titans Rugby league Pty Ltd company, however operate using a joint mission statement.

    Community has been at the heart of the Gold Coast Titans organisation since 2007, with the club committed to playing a key role across the Gold Coast and broader community through the implementation of initiatives and programs which are designed to connect, engage and make a difference to the lives of any individual or group we come into contact with. We are driven to have a positive impact on their lives.

    Our people and programs continue to be recognised nationally across the broader sporting community along with the NRL with Titans players awarded the prestigious Ken Stephen medal for the most outstanding contribution to community on three separate occasions, more than any other NRL club.

    Preston Campbell, Luke Douglas and most recently Ryan James the proud recipients of the codes most coveted community award.

    Gold Coast Titans actively support a host of local schools, clubs, charities and community organisations through the implementation of key programs, appearances and donations. Since the club's inception, the club has spent 18,446 hours and made 4,585 appearances with $3,121,181 in merchandise, memorabilia, tickets and other items also donated.

    The Club also provides in excess of $120,000 funding to both the Burleigh Bears and Tweed Heads Seagulls whilst also providing more than $2,000,000 in players to the organisations Intrust Super Cup teams.

    The 'Titans, Oxenford Community Club' will provide a platform for the Gold Coast Titans to continue, enhance and expand the reach of the club's community programs, while also providing some financial relief to the football operations.

    Gold Coast Titans are committed to the pursuit of excellence, the delivery of sustained success and the creation of a strong community asset.

    I had a say about this on Facebook and with a week to think about it, I have changed my position somewhat. I initially thought it was a bad location for a Titans leagues club, but I can now accept the Titans only play a dozen home games every year, so being next to the stadium is not really a priority. I agree it's a good location for a community club and Oxenford is a very central location for a genuine community club.

    My concern is what sort of club will it be? I am concerned it will become a pokie house, and while that might mean more coffers for the club, it's usually never good for the community.

    I'm happy to be proven wrong.

    Yeah Whiz Iím with you on all of that ... pokies are a blight but remember when NSW had them and we didnít? We couldnít compete. I think itís the devil you do and the devil you donít. If we donít move in the area the Finks might.

    A Community Club Can’t survive without gaming. End of story.

    100% with you there mate. I work in the licensed industry and even your state of the art, huge membership, huge food and drink are still getting 80-90% of their revenue from gaming. Sad reality but is integral for a community club to survive

    Finally some common sense. I saw and read so many comments about how it wasn’t near the stadium, but like you said it’s 10-12 days per year.
    I’m not familiar with the proposed site but hopefully it does well.

    Yeah, I was probably one of them. All I've ever really wanted was to be able to stop in at a "Titans" club, have a beer and a feed pre-game, walk/ride to the stadium, watch a game and be able to go back to a central location and dissect/celebrate/drown my sorrows after the game with other like minded RL fans. I accept that this may never happen around Robina, apart from the Dog N Parrot or Wallaby which are both local options that have appeal.

    I agree, I have no objection to it being a club that is supported by pokies, as opposed to a den that pretends to be a community club while just being a licence to fill rooms with pokies.

    I am appalled by what some "SLSC supporters clubs" have become over the past decade. Some/most RSL's too. And sadly some community clubs.

    Hopefully we can all have an impact in what this club becomes and we can shape it.

    And maybe one day we will at least get some/one bar in the area. It desperately needs it. Especially for early meet ups with the Titans crew.

    For the limited number of days I think there should be a facility incorporated in CBus for all hirers. I don’t like the Robina model at all because we only play there, we don’t train there or work out of there and I’ve yet to see any significant social use of Parkwood.

    This is an excellent idea.

    I think you will find that this has been explored and we might see something next season.

    Its completely logical ... we hire the ground for the day not the length of the game ... the bar staff etc are already engaged and conversely we don’t have to have a white elephant in the middle of nowhere.
