Minute's silence for Chapecoense

2nd December, 2016

Football matches all around the world this weekend, including those in the Toolstation NCEL, will hold a minute's silence following Monday's tragic plane crash in Colombia that claimed 71 lives including players and staff from Brazilian side Chapecoense.

Only six people survived after LaMia Airlines Flight 2933 suffered what is thought to be electrical failure and possible lack of fuel as it approached Medellin. Investigations are still ongoing into what happened.

19 of the 22 Chapecoense players who were on the flight lost their lives whilst another suffered career-ending injuries.

FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura released the following statement on Friday to all competitions: "I would like to inform you that, following a proposal by the FIFA President, the Bureau of the Council has agreed that a minute’s silence should be held at every football match this coming weekend in memory of the plane crash in Colombia last Monday which, among others, claimed the lives of players and officials of the Brazilian football club Associação Chapecoense de Futebol while travelling to Medellin to play the final of the Copa Sudamericana.

"The Bureau also agreed that all players should be requested to wear black armbands to commemorate this tragic accident, which has touched the entire football world.

"We would therefore be grateful if you would communicate this decision to the competition organisers in your association for action."

All at the NCEL and its member clubs send our thoughts and deepest condolences to all at Chapecoense after this awful tragedy.
