Chapecoense: History of a tragedy and a miracle
Chapecoense, whose club's full name is Associação Chapecoense de Futebol, is a Brazilian football team which was founded in 1973. Chapecoense is based in the town of Chapeco in the State of Santa Catarina in the south of Brazil, approximately 450km from Port Alegre. The ACF won the state champioship, the Campeonato Catarinense, for the first time in 1972. It has won five state championships so far and they entered Brazil's top division, Serie A, for the first time in 2014. Last 28th November Chapecoense's football players and other staff were flying in a plane which suffered a terrible accident, as they had to play the final of the South American Coup. According to the UK Mirror, the plane crashed because of lack of fuel. However, the UK Daily Mail said that the cause of the plane crash is still undetermined. Telegraph said electrical problems might have caused the problem. Only five or six of eighty people survived to this tragedY, including some of the players. I reckon it's such a sad notice. However, everybody only talks of the tragedy since football players have died, but if there hadn't been a football team on the plane, no one would have spoken of this accident.
