An up-and-coming soccer player who was the victim of a one-punch attack after sticking up for teammates who were racially abused is now locked in a legal battle with Football New South Wales.
- Angus Chance was injured in a one-punch attack after he defended teammates who had been racially abused
- Football NSW did not offer to cover any of his medical bills, and Angus’ father Chris was told the injuries inflicted were not covered because a criminal act had occurred
- Football NSW are now open to covering the medical costs — but the ordeal has already cost both parties thousands of dollars in legal bills
Angus Chance, 23, says the powerful soccer organisation has fought him every step of the way along his painful recovery.
