About Jamaica Women’s National Football Team

The Jamaica women’s national soccer team, nicknamed the “Reggae Girlz”, is one of the top women’s national soccer teams in the Caribbean region along with Trinidad and Tobago and Haiti. In 2008, the team disbanded after failing to make it out of the Olympic Qualifying group stage, which featured the United States and Mexico. The program restarted in 2014 after a nearly six-year hiatus, finishing second at the 2014 Women’s Caribbean Cup after losing 1–0 against Trinidad and Tobago in the final. The team is backed by ambassador Cedella Marley, daughter of Bob Marley; she helps raise awareness for the team, encourages development, and provides for it financially. Jamaica qualified for the FIFA Women’s World Cup for the first time in 2019, but the team was eliminated after losing all of their group stage matches.

Jamaica Women’s National Football Team History

Founding

Women’s soccer in Jamaica began with the founding of the Jamaican Women’s Soccer Association (founded by Andrea Lewis, its first president) in 1987.

1990

On April 17, 1991, the team competed in its first international match against Haiti, which they lost 1-0. In August 1994, the Reggae Girlz were defeated 10-0 by the United States.

2000s

In 2002, the Reggae Girlz qualified for the 2002 CONCACAF Women’s Gold Cup (the qualifying tournament for the 2003 FIFA Women’s World Cup, but lost all of their preliminary round matches. In 2006, the team again qualified for the Women’s Gold Cup and finished in fourth place.

2010s

In 2010, due to lack of funding, the Jamaican Football Federation (JFF) dropped the senior women’s program and the women’s Olympic program. The team was subsequently unable to participate in the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers. In 2011, due to more than three years of inactivity, Jamaica failed to qualify in the FIFA Women’s World Ranking.

In April 2014, Cedella Marley was named the team’s official ambassador and assisted the team with their fundraising efforts. On June 24, 2014, the team launched the “Strike Hard for the Reggae Girlz!” to raise $50,000 to pay for practices, travel expenses, lodging, nutrition and equipment in preparation for the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Championship, where they hoped to secure a spot in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

2020

After several coaching changes, Lorne Donaldson was appointed head coach in 2022. In July 2022, Jamaica qualified for their second World Cup, which is a historic feat considering their male counterparts have been unable to do the same. .
