The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) will need a minimum of US$2million a year to fund its objectives of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and winning the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2021.

The federation’s president Michael Ricketts made the announcement during a press conference at its New Kingston headquarters on Wednesday, October 30, during which he and head coach Theodore Whitmore disclosed objectives for the national senior men’s team in the build-up to the next FIFA World Cup.

Jamaica last qualified for the World Cup in 1998, but changes to the qualification process, according to the president, give the Reggae Boyz a good shot at qualifying.
