IUSC Statement on Chapecoense Tragedy

We are deeply saddened by the news of a plane crash in Columbia that has claimed the lives of Brazil’s Associação Chapecoense de Futebol (soccer) team players & officials. IUSC joins the rest of the international soccer community in mourning the tragic and untimely loss of these soccer players. For a small club that has made tremendous progress in recent years, this tragedy is a devastating blow. Our thoughts and prayers are with the six survivors of the crash, and the families & friends of the 75 players & officials who perished. Our heartfelt condolences go to the fans of Associação Chapecoense de Futebol and the Confederação Brasileira de Futebol (Brazilian Football Federation). IUSC plans to hold a fundraiser and donate the proceeds to Chapecoense to help the team rebuild.
