FOOTBALL: Reggae Girlz in Florida to prepare for World Cup qualifiers

Published:Monday | September 22, 2014 | 11:37 AM

Jamaica’s senior Reggae Girlz have arrived in Orlando, Florida to continue preparation for the CONCACAF Women's Championship to be held in the United States from October 15-26.



The top three teams from the CONCACAF Women’s Championship qualify for next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.



A half spot is also available as the fourth placed team heads into a playoff with the third placed side from the South American Women’s Championship.



Jamaica qualified for the CONCACAF tournament after defeating Puerto Rico, Bermuda and Haiti to top Group A of the inaugural Caribbean Women’s Cup in Trinidad and Tobago last month.



However, the Reggae Girlz failed to go all the way in the Caribbean Women’s Cup as they lost 1-0 against hosts Trinidad and Tobago in the final on August 26.



The Florida-based training camp has been organised through the fund-raising efforts of Cedella Marley, the Jamaica Football Federation-appointed ambassador for national women's football in the country.
