Don't see why a new piece could not be used to repair that...

Looks like there's a fairly significant knot in there, was there a large blemish on the face?. If so that would cause a weakness in that area.  A piece could be spliced in you would want to remove the remainder of the knot (if there is one).

did you purchase from a company? or second hand? Not sure if this would count under a warranty but worth a try

I could be keen to take it off your hands, I have a couple others with similar damage that I have attempted to repair so wouldn't mind giving this a go

I would be happy to splice in a piece for you free of charge. No guarantees though. So long as you pay postage. (About a fiver)

I've had bats repaired with worse damage that are still going well. I'd be graciously accepting @Gurujames very generous offer of a free repair!!

Polyeurathane glue. Gorilla glue is a well known example.
