Fans of Brazilian Football Club Chapecoense were united in their grief as they gathered in front of the Arena Conda stadium to mourn those who lost their lives in the tragic plane crash on Tuesday.
81 passengers were travelling on Flight AMI2933 to take part in the club's first ever Copa Sudamericana final in Medellin, Colombia when it crashed, reportedly killing more than 70 of those on board.
Now their opponents for a game that will now never take place, Atletico Nacional, have made a request to CONMEBOL that Chapecoense be named as winners of the tournament in tribute to those who lost their lives in the disaster.
Atletico Nacional player Gilberto García led the calls for the tournament to be awarded to their opponents, saying: 'We want Chapecoense to be champions'.
Brazilian football continued to unite in the aftermath of the disaster, with a statement appearing on Corinthians' website confirming that the Presidents of the country's top flight clubs are proposing to the Brazilian Football Association that Chapecoense be exempt from relegation for three years and be allowed free loan signings next season.
The gestures come as fans of the Brazilian club flock to their home stadium to mourn those who died, and pray for the passengers who are believed to have survived the crash.
Among the survivors are believed to be defender Alan Ruschel and goalkeeper Jackson Follmann, who were reportedly pulled from the wreckage. Jacson Follmann, defender Helio Hermito, Zampier Neto and passengers Rafael Correa Gobbato and Ximena Suarez also survived, officials said.
