Help Fund Women’s Jamaican Soccer Team for World Cup 2015
The Women’s Jamaican Soccer Team is partnering with Cedella Marley to raise funds for historical Women’s World Cup 2015 bid.
Jamaica’s national women’s football team, the Reggae Girlz, are ranked 4th in their region but they have NO funding from the government to train or compete and WE NEED TO HELP THEM! This is not just a Jamaican issue, this is an issue for everyone who believes in the power that sport has on women.
JULY 15TH UPDATE: WE HAVE RAISED CLOSE TO 45% OF OUR GOAL AND STILL NEED TO HELP THE REGGAE GIRLZ GET TO THE NEXT ROUND.
Just a few weeks ago the Reggae Girlz CRUSHED their opponents in the first round: St. Lucia 14-0 & the Dominican Republic 7-0. They are obviously good enough to play in the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada. The only problem?The Jamaica Football Federation has always believed in its female football program but has struggled to secure sufficient funding. As a result, they’re not able to institute the elements that other world-class female soccer programs consider to be fundamental like traveling to play in practice matches, proper training camp accommodations, or even covering their expenses to the next qualifying match. And that may ultimately prevent them from taking part in the World Cup in 2015. Fortunately, through the vision of Federation president Captain Horace Burrell, the Jamaica women’s program has been given another opportunity to fulfill its potential.
