The 2014 Men's Caribbean Cup Finals in Jamaica, begins today with a Group A double-header at the Montego Bay Sports Complex.



Trinidad and Tobago, the 2012 losing finalists, will open the tournament when they face Curacao in the first game at 5:30 p.m.



The second game features title-holders Cuba against French Guiana at 8 p.m.

Jamaica's Reggae Boyz, drawn in Group B, open their campaign against Martinique tomorrow at 8 p.m.



The top four teams will automatically qualify for the Gold Cup, while the fifth place team will enter a home and away playoff against the fifth place side in UNCAF for a final Gold Cup spot.



In addition, the winner of the tournament earns an automatic berth to the Copa Centennial Cup to be played in the USA in 2016.



Meanwhile, Jamaica's football boss Captain Horace Burrell says all is in place for a successful tournament.



Captain Burrell is expecting the Reggae Boyz to win the title after they flopped at the tournament's last edition two years ago in Antigua.
