Police have charged a 27-year-old man after a fight erupted at a football game in Kwinana on the weekend.

The fight broke out at Medina Oval during a league game between the Kwinana Knights and Rossmoyne on Saturday afternoon at Medina Oval.

The Knights Football Club released a statement following the incident.

“The Kwinana Knights Football Club would like to acknowledge that an unfortunate incident occurred on the sidelines during a break in play of the league game which in turn resulted in the game having to be abandoned,” the club said in the statement.

"This was a dispute between families in the area and had nothing to do with the football club whatsoever.

“We are disappointed that it happened at our ground as we pride ourselves on being a family oriented football club and would like to ensure to everyone that this is not a usual occurrence.”

Footage has since emerged of the incident showing brawlers picking up objects and throwing them, eventually hitting a parked car.

An Orelia has been charged with stealing a motor vehicle and going armed in public to cause terror.
 
He is due to appear before the Rockingham Magistrates Court on June 19.

Police have appealed for anyone with information on the fight to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
