Soccer Chairman takes fall off stage while presenting trophy

After Australia’s A-League Grand Final match this weekend, chairman Frank Lowy had a moment of embarrassment while presenting the trophy to the winner.

As Lowy walked to the front of the stage, he took one step too many and ended up tumbling head first into the ground. Surprisingly, Lowy was able to get up and walk away after the initial shock of the fall wore off.

Here is video of Lowy’s epic tumble.

Perhaps the most surprising thing about the video is that all of the players held it together and did not burst into laughter. We can all have a chuckle now that we know Lowy is okay, but at the time it was more shocking than anything.

You have to give Lowy credit, though. He tried everything in his power to hang on for dear life.

He just couldn’t hang on long enough.
