KINGSTON, Jamaica – Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz will play Panama in Kingston on Sunday, May 19 at 7pm at the National Stadium. This will be the final home match before they head out to the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France, June 7 to July 7.
The team has international friendlies in Florida (May 21 – 24) and Scotland (May 28) en route to France.
Panama was the team the Reggae Girlz defeated 4-2 on penalties (October 2018) to seal their spot for the World Cup. The return match is expected to provide a thrilling encounter for fans in Kingston.
While in Jamaica from May 12 to 20, there will be a series of events on and off the field for the team.
The Special Projects Team will be hosting a fundraising lapathon at the Jamaica College Ashenheim Stadium on Saturday, May 18 beginning at 6:30 am.
A member of the Special Projects Team, Pat Garel, says “the event is aimed at raising well-needed funds to off-set some of the costs associated with ensuring the team has all the resources needed for a secure journey onward and during the World Cup. We see this as an important event for the Jamaican fans and the Girlz.”
Fans are required to contribute a small fee of J$1,500 and the event will combine the walk/run and will have entertainment for all from 6:00 – 9:30 am
Participants are being asked to wear their best and most appropriate Jamaican outfit to come celebrate the Reggae Girlz. The team, which will have a training session that Saturday, will make a short pit stop at the venue to say thanks.
