EA Sports Pay Tribute To Chapecoense With Touching FIFA 17 Gesture

Since the devastating news broke of the plane crash that killed almost 80 people and the majority of the Chapecoense team on their way to the Copa Sudamerica final, tributes have been pouring in from around the world and now EA Sports have made their own classy gesture to the Brazilian team.

As part of FIFA 17's Ultimate Team mode, every player was yesterday given the badge and kits of Chapecoense along with the message, "Wear this kit and crest in support of the friends, family, and fans of Chapecoense,"


Well played, EA. On top of tributes paid by Atletico Nacional and the rallying around Chapecoense by Brazilian clubs in the wake of the tragedy, our faith in humanity is being gradually restored.
