Ball-Boy Tackled By Adelaide United Player In Extra-Time, Gets Sent Off And Sparks Mass Brawl

There's a reason why this ball-boy was brought on stage to celebrate Sydney FC's title success after a dramatic 2-1 win.

After a tense and feisty affair in normal time, the FFA Cup Final between Sydney FC and Adelaide United went to extra-time. Both teams went all out to secure the win but in the 114th minute, a mass brawl ensued.

In a moment of madness shortly after they conceded the winner, Adelaide United defender Michael Marrone literally tackled a ball-boy in front of the subs bench.

As you can see in the below footage, shit proceeded to hit the fan.

Marrone now faces the prospect of being banned for a long period after the incident that sparked such a huge reaction from players and staff.

Shortly after the final-whistle Adelaide United coach Marco Kurz apologised on behalf of Marrone via The Brisbane Times:

"I can only say sorry and Micky is very down. I think he spoke with the boy after the game and he's OK, it's not his nature and I hope after the talk it was OK but from my side and also from the players' side, we'll say sorry,"
