The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF), in conjunction with its counterparts from the United States, has decided to forgo two friendly internationals which were being negotiated to be played in October.

Jamaica was in negotiations to play the United States and a top Central American team in the USA, but the continued rise in numbers of COVID-19 has forced the postponement of both games, for health and safety reasons.

The JFF will continue to seek opportunities to play games in preparation for the World Cup qualifiers, which start in June next year.
