The date February 6 is forever sealed in the minds of people who are somehow connected to Manchester United, and why not everyone who likes the game, regardless of club affiliations. Just over 60 years ago, on the darkest day in the history of `red devils`, eight of the most talented footballers of English football are killed. This is happening in the terrible plane crash in Munich after the 1/4-finals of the CASE against the Red Star. Besides the eight `Babys` babies, a total of 23 people find their death. Three of them are from Manchester United headquarters, and eight are journalists who reflect the team`s performance. An unmatchable part of the whole story is the way Matt Busby manages to build a new team that ten years later wins the European Champions Cup. Part of this lineup is also Bobby Charlton, who is among the survivors during the terrible catastrophe in Munich. During the day there are planned events with which the club from online soccer stream will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the tragedy.
