Children were caught in the middle of ugly scenes at the Adelaide Oval, when a violent brawl broke out after the Big Bash game last night.
The fist fight unfolded on the hill, as thousands of people filed out of the grounds around 10pm.
Strikers fan, Kyron Huddy filmed the entire incident on his phone, telling 9News, “It got out of control and just ruined it for everyone.
“Unnecessary, unwarranted, disgusting, there were so many children around.”
Mr Huddy said thankfully security and police were quick to break-up the fight, but one of men involved was left bloodied.
“Luckily the security guard was right there to stop it… he ended up with a bloody nose but it could have been worse.”
South Australia Police are investigating the scuffle and say one man was evicted from the ground.
The brutality has left many questioning whether they’ll attend upcoming games.
“I just think it’s terrible it’s getting to the stage where it’s not safe to come to these sort of events,” one told 9News.
“It’s not pleasant and particularly when people have got their kids with them and then they decide that the normal rules of society somehow don’t apply,” said another.
“You don’t want to put yourself or your children in that situation where there might be that chance of violence,” said Mr Huddy.
The Oval’s Stadium Management Authority told 9News “Last night’s confrontation was an isolated incident and that overall crowd behaviour at Big Bash matches has been exemplary.”
Anti-social behaviour like last night’s clash can result in patrons being banned from the ground for an extended period.
