"We are excited to be launching our initial NRL assault at the BCU International Stadium in Coffs Harbour," Titans football manager Scott Sattler said.
"We have been overwhelmed by the wave of support from the Coffs Harbour region for our brand-new side, and have set our sights on seeing a crowd of more than 10,000 supporters at our very first game."
It is the only NRL game to be played on the North Coast this season.
"This is a unique opportunity for local and regional rugby league fans to see a collection of Australia's biggest NRL talents in action right here in Coffs Harbour," the council's sports unit manager, Ben Payne, said.
"The Titans have invested a lot of time and effort in the Coffs Harbour region and have shown a lot of commitment to our area already, in terms of the junior development program they have put in place, and establishing a talent identification program under the watchful eye of Sawtell Panthers captain Craig Wallace."
