Plane Crash Claims Lives Of Brazilian Football Team

Tue 29th Nov 2016 | Football Club Management

A plane carrying 81 people has crashed in on its approach to Medellin in Colombia, claiming the lives of 76 people.

It’s understood onboard were the Chapecoense football team all of whom are thought to have died.

The team were travelling to Colombia, via Bolivia, to take part in the Copa Sudamericana final against Medellin team Atletico Nacional.

That game has now been suspended as Conmebol, the football confederation for South America said all activities had suspended.

A statement on the club’s official website, read: “Due to the mismatch of the news coming from various journalistic sources, giving an account of an accident to the aircraft carrying the delegation the Chapecoense, the Football Chapecoense Association, through its vice president Ivan Tozzo, reserves the right to wait for the official announcement of the Colombian air authority to issue any official statement about the accident. 

“God be with our athletes, officials, journalists and other guests who are with the delegation.”
