Chapecoense's Classy New Away Kit Features Colombian Flag To Thank The Country For Their Support
| Last updated
Chapecoense's brand spanking new away kit features the Colombian flag to thank the country for their support after the air disaster which tragically killed 71 people.
In November 2016, a plane carrying first-team players, coaches and club staff crashed in Colombia.
Chapecoense were on their way to Medellin, Colombia, for the first leg of the final of the Copa Sudamericana against Atletico Nacional.
And as a way of acknowledging and thanking the country for it's support, the Brazilian outfit have incorporated the Colombian flag on their new away strip.
The club have issued a powerful message when unveiling their new shirt.
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

"Passion is what moves football and motivates any overrun. It is also the one that unites hats and Colombia supporters. This inspired the new shirt of Umbro, made for you to carry that passion in the chest," the statement reads.
