(Jubilant Girls after a triumph at the World Cup)
She effectively restarted the program on her own after the program was shut down by the administration in 2008. This is once again another disastrous decision by a failing administration.
(Failing JFF president Michael Ricketts)
The Michael Ricketts-led administration has made any job within the sport next to unbearable as managers are underpaid, players never get their monies on time, and it’s an all-round circus. The Girlz team qualified for the World Cup and had to set up a GoFundMe to fund the trip.
The federation gets around $500k from the governing body, FIFA, yet still there is no travel that the players have to themselves. And this is not just for the women’s team as the men not too long ago had a friendly match in the last window, but they only got visa clearance for 24/25 players which signals more incompetence. It is a dark day for Jamaican football, but will there be sunshine shortly?
Well, I am 18 years old currently undergoing my Bachelors of Science in Media and communications. I'm currently in my first semester and I would like to be a sports analyst in the future. I am also from Jamaica. I would like to work at one of the biggest sports companies in the world (ESPN/SKY/BT) but everyone needs a start and I would love it if you were to give me that start.
