Two people are believed to have been stabbed in a fight that erupted after a football match in Sydney.

Riot squad police were called to a field on West Botany Street, Rockdale, just after 5pm today after reports of a brawl involving “spectators, armed with weapons”, police said.

Two men were found with lacerations to their limbs.

They have been taken to St George Hospital.

A third man was “trampled in the melee” and suffered minor injuries.

A crime scene has been established at the field and police said they were continuing to try to identify the people involved.

The brawl appears to have taken place after the match between Rockdale Ilinden and Sydney United 58 in the National Premier Leagues NSW Men competition.

Footage filmed from the sideline appears to show players involved in a heated clash as people in the crowd shout and heckle.

“Kill the (expletive),” one person shouts twice as people – who appear to be from the stands – jump onto the field.

Other footage appears to show flares being let off in a car park beside the field as people continue to clash.

Any witnesses or anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
