The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) is projecting a $12.2 million profit from last Wednesday’s friendly international against Costa Rica at the National Stadium.

JFF Treasurer, Gary Sinclair said the federation grossed $30 million from the game, with expenses totalling $17.8 million.

The JFF is still awaiting returns from three ticket outlets and returns from Corporate Sales.

A release from the JFF yesterday stated that the preliminary income inclusive of ticket sales, sponsorship and broadcast rights was $30 million.

The release further stated that expenses relating to the Jamaican team were $6.9 million, compared to $6.5 millions for Costa Rica.

Other match related expenses accounted for a $4.4 million.

The JFF lost approximately $600,000 from hosting the Guatemala and El Salvador friendly games in November.
