JFF buys bus to reduce transportation cost
The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) with help from the FIFA FORWARD programme and from its own resources has purchased a 2018 Coaster Bus to assist the Federation with the transportation of its national teams as well as the work of the Secretariat.
The purchase of the vehicle will significantly reduce expenses that the Federation has been carrying over the years for transportation and by extension aim to make a dent in the Federation's accumulated debt.
The JFF over the recent many years has paid for all airport transfers as well as movement of its national teams to all training sessions. The JFF has also had to cover transportation expenses for visiting teams for World Cup qualifiers; international friendly games; tournaments and practice games at any level.
JFF president Michael Ricketts welcomed to the new addition and noted that he will be looking to secure more vehicle to help offset the federation's transportation budget.
"During our campaign we thought it would be prudent with regards to our spending. When we did an audit to look at what we were spending we thought the right thing to do was to purchase a bus for the purpose of the Jamaica Football Federation and its 12 units," Ricketts said. "One bus is probably not enough so the work will continue. We will be soliciting support and we are in negotiations to secure support for our travel expenses."
