Footy Legends, set in Khoa's home town, Yagoona Sydney, tells the story of Luc Vu, a young man with an obsession about football. Out of work, and with welfare authorities threatening to take away his little sister, Luc re-unites his old high school football team to win a competition that could change their lives. But to win, they will not only have to face their fears, but face five of the greatest footy legends of all time…

Joining the cast on the red carpet at the premier were special guests Jay Laga'aia, Dan Wyllie, Stuart MacGill, Wil Traval and NRL's Cliffy Lyons, Brett Kenny, Rod Wishart, Gary Larson and Brad Clyde.

Footy Legends officially opens around the country on Thursday August 3, at Hoyt's cinemas.
