In the wake of the devastating plane crash that killed most of the players from the Brazilian football club: Chapecoense; FIFA 17 are awarding players the club’s kit and crest for free in order to pay their respects to those who passed away.
EA Sports suggests FIFA 17 players wear the kit “in support of the friends, family and fans of Chapecoense”. The free crests cannot be traded in on FIFA 17, but many players are trying to create duplicates in order to trade for their personal gain (a largely inconsiderate action).
19 Chapecoense players were killed, two remain in critical condition, and one has had a leg amputated with a possibility he may lose the other leg as well. The exact cause of the crash is unknown, and Colombian authorities are working to recover the bodies of the players and the 52 other victims of the crash.
Atletico Nacional, another club due to play Chapecoense in the final, has offered to concede the match. Many other Brazilian football teams have called on local football authorities to prevent the club’s deregulation in the wake of the disaster.
