The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) and members of Jamaica’s Senior Men’s National team – the Reggae Boyz, have reached an agreement regarding their contract negotiations.
The resolution follows months of disputes between the players and the federation.
A joint statement between the federation and the players was issued on Thursday, April 8. It reads as follows:
“The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) and the Senior Men’s National team are pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached in respect of the contract terms.”
“The agreed terms relate to remuneration as well as player welfare, which will serve to establish a strong basis for a harmonious relationship between both parties. Moreover, the period of negotiations provided a forum for the ventilation and resolution of some long-standing issues and more recent ones such as player welfare in a pandemic environment,” it continued.
“The agreement signals the level of effort and commitment by everyone involved to re-align football administration and standards in keeping with the emerging international benchmarks.”
JFF President Michael Ricketts is overjoyed. “I am delighted with the agreement. Now everyone can concentrate on the most important element… Jamaica’s football,” Ricketts said.
“I want to commend the players and members of the JFF for a job well done. I look forward the every single individual working passionately to improve themselves and the team as we try to qualify for Qatar 2022.”
