    Horrendous news. They had an unprecedented run from the 4th division to the top flight and now this. Ugh.

    For those that don't know much about South American soccer, Sudamericana is the equivalent of Europa League. As broXcore mentioned, Chapecoense is a small team from Brazil that just recently made it to Brazil's Serie A (top division) and had an amazing run to reach the final of the Sudamericana. I wanna say this would be like Bournemouth making it to the Europa League final. Ugh. Awful news.

    PSG have informed FIFA that they will donate €40 million to Chapecoense. Fantastic gesture. (Source: Various)

    EDIT: twitter is full of shitty people who make stuff up.

    saw where their semifinal opponent is forfeiting the match and asking conmebol to name them the champions so they get the winnings. clubs offering to loan players to them to help get them back on their feet for next year.

    sad shit but the sense of community and help in these situations always is awesome

    Apparently he called Perez and asked the club to match his donation. Think they're raffling off some jerseys from this weekend's clasico as well.

    Plane's fuel supply was enough to fly 1600 miles. Their trip was 1605 miles. Additionally they had to take two laps in a holding pattern before they ran out of fuel (according to a surviving flight attendant). 3 players have survived though one had a leg amputated from the injuries.

    Revenue from El Clasico will go to the families of the deceased.

    Fuck PSG if a donation doesn't happen. Understandable if it isn't anywhere near the reported 40m.

    Hoping Umbro decides to make a lot of the their tops and donate the proceeds to the club/families.

    UmbroGlobal made an announcement that when they time is right they'll talk with UmbroBrazil and the club.

    OG Ronaldo and El Diego need to join up as well.

    When the FIFA video game does roster updates, they've deleted players that have died in the ensuing update (Junior Malanda a couple years ago comes to mind) I can't think of a way to handle this situation that wouldn't receive widespread criticism.

    Is it purely a money grab or are they sending some of their profits to the families affected? Will hold judgement till I learn more but doesn't look good.
