  • 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.

Chapecoense successfully defended its Santa Catarina state league title on Sunday, despite a 1-0 defeat at home against Avai.

And they then went a step further by going all the way and winning the overall competition.

The club have since worked incredibly hard to get themselves back on their feet, as rivals Brazilian clubs have loaned them players as they've started to rebuild once again.

A wonderful turnaround for everyone associated with the club.
