Brazil football season ends with tribute to Chapecoense

<p>The last day of the football league season in Brazil and Chapecoense’s stadium remained empty.</p> <p>But across the country teams and fans came together to pay tribute to the small club which lost most of its players and officials in a <a href="http://www.euronews.com/2016/11/30/chapecoense-crash-plane-may-have-run-out-of-fuel">plane crash in Colombia last month</a>.</p> <p>Each in their own way commemorated their fallen colleagues – a minutes silence, the names of the victims printed on shirts, even bank details put on display where people can make donations.</p> <p>The message “Somos chape” was held aloft on placards and flags. It evoked the “Je suis Charlie” slogan in a show of solidarity with all 71 people who died in the crash as well as the six survivors.</p> <p>The new season starts in late January with Chapecoense somehow hoping to rebuild and move on from the tragedy.</p>
