  • Chapocoense won the state championship six months after a plane crash that killed 71 people

The team was traveling to Medellin nearly six months ago to face Atletico in the Copa Sudamericana finals when its chartered plane from Bolivia crashed after having run out of gas just a few minutes before landing.

Chapecoense were travelling to a South American cup final in November of previous year to take on Medellin based side Atlético Nacional.

A Brazilian flag and makeshift altar full of crosses and flowers stood where the plane's fuselage broke into two a short distance from Medellin's global airport, killing all but six of 77 people aboard, including 19 players. Only one of the four crewmembers, three players, and two other passengers survived.

The Recopa is between the champions of the Copa Libertadores and the Copa Sudamericana.

Despite drawing 1-1 with Avai in the two-legged final, Chapeconese were awarded the title by virtue of having a better record during the season.
