Over 400 schoolgirl footballers from 22 schools that compete in the ISSA Schoolgirl Football Competition will be hosted at the National Stadium to cheer on the Reggae Girlz, who will be playing their final home match against Panama before their historic FIFA World Cup debut in France.

Wisynco, through its WATA brand, announced that it would be helping the schoolgirl footballers to attend the match under the banner theme ‘WATA Presents Girlz Football Showcase’.

According to Wisynco’s Senior Marketing and Public Relations Manager Tamara Ward, “The WATA Football Showcase is all about girl power! We are celebrating the achievements of our Reggae Girlz and the dedication of our ISSA Schoolgirls football teams to sports. Our hope is to inspire these ladies through a fun and healthy social interaction among their peers that builds confidence, team spirit, motivates them to make the right decisions and find balance in their nutrition habits. We are thrilled to have made this experience possible for 45 teams or over 800 young girls.”

The teams will be treated to a showcase inclusive of tickets to the match, a nutrition talk led by Kamila McDonald, an inspirational presentation by a Reggae Girl, a team photo to commemorate the day, football gear giveaways, and lunch. Additionally, they will get a musical performance from WATA ambassador Wayne Marshall.

WATA is the hydration sponsor of the JFF’s senior men, women, and grassroots programme. This sponsorship has been ongoing for over 15 years. During that time, the company has been a major sponsor of multiple FIFA World Cup campaigns for the Reggae Boyz and now the Reggae Girlz as they prepare to compete in the FIFA Women’s World Cup for the first time.
