The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) is deeply saddened by the tragedy of the Associação Chapecoense de Futebol, which occurred Monday, in Colombia.
The football family has lost a talented team, which had a promising future. Their outstanding path in reaching the Copa Sudamericana final for the first-ever time, will remain in the history of our game as an inspiration for younger generations across the world.
CONCACAF stands in solidarity with CONMEBOL, the Confederação Brasileira de Futebol, and the Chapecoense family. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the South American football community at this difficult time.
