Sunderland host Leicester City at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.
Brazilian Serie A side Chapecoense were on their way to play in the final of the Copa Sudamericana, South America’s equivalent of the UEFA Europa League, when their plane came down close to the Columbian city of Medellin.
On board the flight were the players, staff and officials of Chapecoense as well as a number of journalists on their way to cover the biggest game in the club’s history.
A Sunderland statement said: "Players from both sides will also wear black armbands as Premier League sides join forces in a show of solidarity with the global footballing family.
