The world of football suffered its worst ever air accident in November 2016 when a flight carrying the Brazilian team Chapecoense crashed near La Unión, Colombia. Among 41 dead were 19 players. 41 wasted lives and 19 players who would never again wear the green and white shirts of the Chapecó club.

The Spanish newspaper Marca ensured that every Spanish La Liga club would be represented at the proposed memorial museum in Brazil. They hand-delivered the shirts of the 20 La Liga teams of the 2016/2017 teams which had been autographed by the respective players.

The president of Chapecoense, David de Nes, was visibly moved by this demonstration of support from the Spanish teams.
