Cbus Super Stadium – stadium description

New football- and rugby-specific stadium was finance by the Queensland Government in the outskirts of Robina in 2008. Construction started in 2006 and was planned to end up with 25,000 seats. However during construction the main contractor announced another 2,400 seats may easily be fitted inside the ground. After this being approved, designers of Populous (then known as HOK Sport) altered the documentation to allow extra seating.

First major event was the 2008 Rugby World Cup. Only two games were played in Robina though. The anchor tenants for the ground from the start were the Gold Coast Titans. Starting in mid-2009 the football side Gold Cast United joined them, leading to a ground-share. In 2018 part of the rugby tournament of Commonwealth Games will also be played in Robina.
