A Melbourne suburban football club has released a statement to say it is “extremely saddened” after senior players were filmed performing a public sex act during Mad Monday celebrations.
Video of the act, which appears to have been performed in a public bar in front of teammates, has been spreading across the internet.
The shocking video shows one player exposing his genitals before another man performs a sex act on him as cheering can be heard in the background of the video.
The Glen Waverley Football Club has confirmed the players involved are members of the club’s senior playing group and confirmed the video was taken this week during end-of-season celebrations that were not sanctioned by the club.
The Herald Sun reports a patron also claims the players were also abusive to other people in the public establishment.
The Glen Waverley Football and Netball Club released a letter to its members and wider community to state the players involved will be disciplined.
“The committee has been made aware of an incident which has occurred during the post-season celebrations of some of our senior playing group,” the statement said.
“While this occurred away from the club and was not a club-sanctioned event, we are extremely saddened and disappointed in the behaviour shown by people who should know better.
“The club is taking immediate action to address the serious breach of our culture and values that has occurred within this incident.
“The individuals involved, along with the broader playing group will be both disciplined and educated and if need be, counselled in the type of conduct expected by members of our club, along with the physical and emotional impact this has had on the families involved, club members, players and the wider community,” the statement said.
“There is no further comment at this time, and we request that the wellbeing of those be respected as they deal with the impact from the incident.”
