    Default Is Aquis about to walk away? Courier Mail story

    Sport Confidential: Titansí sponsor drama and why Panthers young gun stayed for less

    THE major sponsor of the Gold Coast Titans could be about to walk from a deal that is not due to expire until 2021.

    Aquis will be impossible to miss on the front of the Titans jersey on Friday night as the club chases a third straight victory against St George Illawarra before they head into the bye round.

    They have been on board with the club for just over two years.

    Sports Confidential understands the deal with Aquis, a Hong Kong-based investment company who have splurged plenty of cash on the holiday strip, including the Gold Coast Turf Club and Nathan Tinklerís former stud Patinack Farm, is worth more than $1 million a season.

    Sponsors are worth their weight in gold in the current climate.

    Just ask Parramatta who have gone without a major backer all season.

    In the same week there was debate about the merits of cutting the Sydney teams from nine to eight and starting a second team in Brisbane, news of the potential Titans-Aquis split suggests the economy is no stronger up north.

    Not much actual fact in this story... The club should release a swift statement to maintain confidence.

    Stories like this don't get aired if the club is winning and the fans are coming to the games.

    Just looked up this story and there was a bit more after that.
    "Titans boss Graham Annesley has worked wonders since arriving at the club, including helping land the prized scalp of Jarryd Hayne.

    He also remains hopeful of retaining Blues hooker Nathan Peats.

    As for the current position with their naming rights sponsor, Annesley told us: “Aquis have been a great partner for the Titans, we’re currently in discussions regarding next year, and once we know the outcome of those discussions, we’ll happily confirm the outcome.’’

    The article states that the deal is until 2021 but Annersley is quoted as currently being in discussion for next year..........

    That doesn't make sense unless THEY want to exit the deal.
