Reggae Girlz and JFF Scheduled for Crucial Meeting to Address Differences this Friday

Reggae Girlz jubilant after qualifying for the knockout stage of the Women’s World Cup

In a renewed effort to mend the strained relationship between the Reggae Girlz and the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF), both parties are set to convene this Friday for a crucial meeting.

This gathering comes in the wake of a standoff initiated last year when senior Reggae Girlz, who represented Jamaica in the FIFA Women’s World Cup, declined a call-up by the national federation to participate in the 2024 Concacaf Women’s Gold Cup qualifiers.

The players cited issues ranging from lack of communication to mistreatment as the reasons behind their decision.

Efforts to resolve the impasse hit a roadblock during a recent meeting between the World Cup squad and the JFF. A subsequent attempt to reconvene in mid-December also proved unsuccessful.


However, there is optimism that the upcoming meeting, scheduled for this weekend, will finally pave the way for a resolution.

The Reggae Girlz, backed by the global players union FIFPRO, are determined to address all outstanding issues.

Dennis Chung, the General Secretary of the JFF, confirmed that the meeting is still on track.

As tensions linger, FIFPRO’s involvement signals a united front from the players, underlining the gravity of the situation.

The outcome of this pivotal meeting holds significance not only for the immediate concerns at hand but also for the future collaboration between the players and the football federation.
