Hillsborough tribute to Chapecoense

1 December 2016

Prior to the Owls’ Sky Bet Championship fixture with Preston on Saturday, a minute’s silence will be observed for the tragedy that shook the football world earlier this week.

In respect of the Chapecoence players, staff, all those who lost their lives and all those affected by the tragedy in Colombia, the players will also wear black armbands as a mark of respect.

A flight carrying the Chapecoense squad, club officials and journalists, crashed en route to Colombia for the club's Copa Sudamericana final first leg against Atletico Nacional.

The thoughts of Sheffield Wednesday remain with Chapecoense, the families and friends of those who lost their lives.
