Christopher "Chris" Grossman (born 6 March 1987) is an Australian football (soccer) player who last played for Sunshine George Cross in the NPL Victoria 2 West.

Club career[edit]

He was signed from the Queensland Academy of Sport. The Roar allowed him to play for then current Brisbane Premier League champions, Rochedale Rovers Football Club, prior to the commencement of the A-League's third season to maintain match sharpness.[1]

On 24 December 2008, Grossman announced that he had signed with A-League expansion team North Queensland Fury for the 2009–10 season.[2] During the season, he has found himself the unfamiliar role of right back, to which he has excelled in and reveled at the chance of first team starting football. Coach Ian Ferguson elected to play him there largely due to the extensive injury list at North Queensland Fury.

On 21 November 2012 Grossman joined the Newcastle Jets as a short-term injury replacement for Ben Kantarovski.[3]

Grossman signed with Port Melbourne SC ahead of the 2013 season and spent the next 3 seasons at the club, serving as captain and vice-captain during this period. He left the club following the 2015 season.
