The Titan Are Staying In Bathurst

The Acadie-Bathurst Titan want you to know that the Titan are staying in Acadie-Bathurst.

Just like every spring, rumours have begun to circulate about the team possibility relocating. Team owner Leo-Guy Morrissette denied those rumours in an article on the Titan website entitled “The Titan In Bathurst To Stay.”

“There is absolutely no truth to that story,” Morrissette said of the rumours that team could be moving to Rivière-du-Loup, Quebec. “I would love to know the names of those businessmen I am apparently in discussions with.

“The Titan will be in Bathurst next season and for many more to come,” he added.

Bathurst is averaging 1,391 fans per game this season - the lowest average in the league. The QMJHL is averaging 3,371 fans per game as a whole this year.

Last year, the Titan averaged a league-low 1,611 fans per contest.

The franchise has been involved in several different relocation rumours over the last few years.

As much as we’d like the Titan to remain in Bathurst, you have to wonder how much longer they can last. The franchise can only survive for so long with such low attendance numbers. Hopefully they can somehow turn it around.

The Titan visit Saint John this Sunday afternoon at 3pm.
