    Unbelievably sad news. On their way to a cup final, nonetheless. Prayers.

    I just read that Brazilian clubs will loan them players next season with no fee and that they will be exempt from relegation for three seasons.

    In addition to the tragic loss of most club players, coaches, and medical/PT staff, it's likely most of their top supporting management and owners were on board along with journalists, air crew, etc. So sad for all involved, families, friends, supporters, and the Brazilian football as religion culture. So challenging on a personal level, and a long road to recovery as a club. May the injured heal well, family and friends find comfort over time, and the deceased RIP.

    Their opponents in the final gave them the title.
