Jamaica will host Suriname in a top-of-the-table clash in Group One of the Scotia Bank Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Caribbean Cup qualifiers next Sunday to determine which team advances to the 2017 competition as well as the CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament.

The game will kick off at 6 p.m. at the National Stadium.

Both countries are joint leaders in the three-team group with three points apiece. It will be a play to the finish encounter as a winner must emerge from the encounter.

The game was originally scheduled for October 5 at the Anthony Spaulding Complex, but was rescheduled due to the passage of Hurricane Matthew.

Nine overseas-based Reggae Boyz arrived in the island yesterday and will be joining the camp to begin preparation this morning at 8 o'clock to be followed by another session at 4 p.m. at the Stadium East.

The overseas players are Damion Lowe, Omar Holness, Owayne Gordon, Shaun Francis, Ryan Thompson, Oneil Fisher, Cory Burke, Michael Binns, and Romario Williams.

They join local-based players Ladale Ritchie, Dwayne Ambusley, Allan Ottey, Dino Williams, Ewan Grandison, Andrew Vanzie, Rosario Harriott, Dicoy Williams and Rohan Richards.

Jamaica will look for their second win in the group as they had defeated Guyana 4-2 on October 11 in Guyana.

Meanwhile, tickets for the game will go on sale on Saturday. Entry fees are: grandstand: $1,500 and bleachers: $700.

Ticket outlets: York Pharmacy in Half-Way-Tree; Total service stations located at Stanton Terrace and Dunrobin Avenue; The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston; and Captain's Bakery and Grill, downtown and Cross Roads. No tickets will be sold at the National Stadium.
