The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) could get close to a million US dollars in incentives from Italian sporting manufacturing company Kappa if the national senior team qualifies for the 2010 World Cup and CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The incentive deal was announced at the quarterly JFF’s Board of Directors meeting this week.

The JFF will receive US$350,000 if the Reggae Boyz qualify for the World Cup and US$100,000 for each game in the knock out stage.

If Reggae Boyz qualify for the Gold Cup, the JFF will get US$100,000 an additional US$50,000 if the team reaches the semi-finals and another US$100,000 for advancing to the final.

The JFF recently signed a two-year sponsorship deal with Kappa at the company’s headquarters in Turin. The equipment manufacturing company will outfit all nine national teams.

The JFF receives a signing fee of US$120,000. The annual equipment supply from Kappa is valued at US$400,000.
