Chapecoense soccer team fans pack the stadium to mark the moment their players should have kicked off in the final of the Copa Sudamericana. They never got to the venue in Colombia to meet their rivals. Most of the Brazilian team was wiped out when their plane crashed into a mountain. The fans at Wednesday's memorial were joined by Chapecoense's remaining players who didn't fly that day. Friends and relatives of the victims were also there to mark the event. Nearly 5, 000 kilometres away in Colombia fans of the team Chapecoense should have played held a simultaneous commemoration. The 46, 000 capacity arena filled up an hour before the ceremony began. They held a minute's silence at the time the game should have started. A total of 71 people died when the chartered plane went down on Monday. Six people survived including three of the players. The pilot reported electrical problems and was preparing for an emergency landing when the crash happened. Reports now suggest it was also out of fuel.
