A plane carrying 77 people, including Brazilian side Chapecoense, crashed in Medellin, Colombia, at around 3:45am GMT today.
Colombian authorities claim 71 people were killed. Only three players are confirmed to be amongst the six survivors.
The team, who were in the Brazilian fourth division as recently as 2009, were travelling to play in the final of the Copa Sudamericana, South America’s version of the Europa League.
As it often does, the football world united to offer its support to Chapecoense, particularly through social media.
Perhaps most heartbreaking of all was the tweet sent from the official Chapecoense account, with the clubs famous green crest now black.
The hashtag #ForçaChape was also trending on Twitter in support of the team.
