Strike Hard for the Reggae Girlz! Jamaica's senior women's team, ranked 4th in their CONCACAF Division this upcoming season, is vying to be the 1st Caribbean team to win a World Cup Championship.
The Jamaica Football Federation is seeking funds to cover the initial costs of training camps, nutrition, travel, and housing for the 26 woman team. In addition to the funds donated by the general public we also welcome corporate sponsorship to cover the full training period through 2015.
The Women's football program has greatly enriched the lives of young girls in Jamaica, but it is woefully underfunded. Several years ago, the women's senior team was actually disbanded due to lack of funding. Last year the team got a second chance, and being the first Caribbean team to get to the World Cup Finals would mean more than just a win for the team...it will help to ensure the continuation of the national women's football programme.
