Chapecoense win first title since plane crash that wiped out team

Chapecoense have won their first title since most of their team were killed in a plane crash.

Only three of the Brazilian club’s players survived November’s crash, when 71 of 77 people on board died.

Top clubs from Brazil and Argentina offered to loan players to Chapocense, who signed 25 new players this season and promoted nine from the youth team.

They lifted the Santa Catarina state championship on Sunday for the second straight year, despite losing to Avai.
