The raucous fans in the crowd continued to chant and make noise while Erin Wilkins stood at the microphone and sang Welcome to Country.

Unfortunately, shortly after Wilkins heard a chorus of boos dominating Wilkins as he made his way through the welcome to the country.

Sadly, things got even worse when the camera panned around the stadium to show the packed crowd once the match started.

Sydney United 58 supporters in NSW National Premier League (NPL) attire gathered in the stands and were criticized by spectators.

As fans continued to watch the broadcast, they were quick to point out what appeared to be fans doing a Nazi salute.

Images of several fans with their right arms raised upwards quickly began circulating on social media, with many disgusted by what they were seeing.

“It was good that Sydney United reached the final. The first NPL club to do this. Instead, it exposed the neo-Nazis in their own support group. People like this should not be welcome in football in this country,” tweeted host Jake Buckley.

Not only the salute, but the audience chant was also condemned by those watching along with fans who labeled the entire spectacle as “embarrassing.”

“This is the worst possible outcome for Australian football. What an embarrassment to this game and this country,” wrote football host Michael Turner.
