The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) will be taking part in the second staging of the CONCACAF Women's Day initiative tomorrow.

The one-day event, celebrated by the various member associations throughout CONCACAF, is aimed at further promoting women's football throughout the region.

CONCACAF has a successful history with women's football, including the hosting of the last FIFA Women's World Cup, which was assessed to be the most successful ever.

Jamaica's national youth women's teams (under-17 and under-20) have also registered success, being the only Caribbean country to reach the CONCACAF stage of World Cup qualification over the last five years. Jamaica has also seen positive development with its female referees.

With the National Under-15 Girls Challenge Cup currently on, the JFF has decided to focus its activities on Match Day three, Group A, which will be played at Drax Hall, St Ann.

The Festival of under-15 Games will feature St Ann vs Portland, Portland vs St Mary, and St Mary vs St Ann.

Another 10 games will be held across the island.
