Gold Coast: Spectator Sports
The Gold Coast's population is increasing at the rate of knots - and with it, its sporting power and opportunities for holidaymakers to catch some great spectator sports. A day at the footy, rugby, basketball or indeed the local ironman contest, is a great way to keep the whole family entertained. The Titans, in the NRL, and the Blaze, in the NBL, both turned two in their respective codes this season and provide a vibrant and colourful atmosphere at all home games. An AFL team looks set to join the fun by 2011 officially and Gold Coast United is the A-League's most colourful new addition. There is something for almost every sports fan in and around the Gold Coast and, as long as you choose to travel within the peak summer months, will find no end of sporting events on hand to please and entertain.
