Chapecoense honors Colombia with beautiful new jersey
Here’s something wonderful we missed over the thrilling club soccer weekend in Europe and Major League Soccer.
The horrible plane crash that claimed the lives of 71 people associated with Brazilian club Chapecoense was one of the most painful stories in soccer history.
Chape was en route to contend the Copa Sudamericana Final against Colombian side Atletico Nacional.
The Colombian side requested that the trophy be awarded to Chape, and the clubs have had an inspiring friendship.
Now Chape, normally sporting green shirts, has released a new jersey honoring the people of Colombia.
It’s pretty great.
A paixão é o que move o futebol e motiva qualquer superação. Também é o que une torcedores da Chape e da Colômbia. Isso inspirou a nova camisa da Umbro, feita para você carregar essa paixão no peito. #VamosChape #Colômbia #LaPasión #UmbroNations pic.twitter.com/pjJhczXIjr— Chapecoense (@ChapecoenseReal) April 14, 2018
