A man has been charged after three men were injured in a brawl that erupted after a football game in Sydney yesterday.
Riot squad police were forced to break up the fight between spectators, who were “armed with weapons” on West Botany Street, Rockdale, just after 5pm on Sunday, police said.
The National Premier Leagues NSW match between Rockdale Ilinden and Sydney United ended with the brawl spilling out onto the street, with the wild scenes filmed by onlookers.
A 23-year-old man has been charged with being armed with intent to commit indictable offence and riot.
The man, from Granville, has been granted conditional bail to appear in Sutherland Local Court on May 18.
He is not allowed to attend any Premier League games under his bail conditions.
Three men were taken to St George Hospital suffering minor injuries after the fight.
