In an extraordinary display of bravery and resilience, two Brighton & Hove Albion fans turned a terrifying ordeal into a moment of unity and strength during their recent visit to Rome. The two men, aged 28 and 29, were subjected to a brutal attack in the Monti district of Rome, where they were assaulted and stabbed by a group of masked assailants shortly after midnight.

The victims, who were in the city to support their team in an upcoming match at Stadio Olimpico, were robbed and sustained significant leg injuries during the attack. The gravity of the situation was quickly recognized by a vigilant restaurant worker, who stumbled upon the injured fans and wasted no time in securing medical assistance for them.

Both fans were rushed to nearby hospitals, San Giovanni and Umberto I Polyclinic, where they received medical attention for their wounds. Despite the traumatic experience, the supporters showed incredible fortitude. One of them, Jack Albion, stood out for his remarkable spirit. After being discharged from the hospital, he made his way to the stadium, supported by a crutch, to watch his beloved team play.

The presence of Jack at the game, just a day after the harrowing incident, ignited a wave of support from the Brighton fan community. As he entered Stadio Olimpico, chants of his name filled the air, with fellow supporters rallying around him, singing in solidarity ahead of the kickoff. This spontaneous outpouring of support not only highlighted the close-knit nature of the Brighton fanbase but also showcased the resilience and unyielding spirit of Jack, who, despite his ordeal, chose to stand with his team in a foreign land.
