 Sport in the Americas and the Caribbean and their connection to popular culture and politics: The “Marley” factor – Jamaica’s Women’s Soccer Team

Friday, January 11,  2019, at 1:00  PM   

Join Danielle and Doc today for an upbeat human interest story that includes sport, music,  culture, a little politics, and the Jamaican Women’s team – a team that even casual “on-the-fence” soccer fans will want to root for in  June.

Jamaica’s Women’s Soccer Team qualified for this year’s 2019 World Cup in France and is the first women’s soccer team from the Caribbean to do so.  Although a long-shot, the team is a great success story.  The ‘Reggae Girlz’ as they are referred to in Jamaica, were revived and inspired to international success in part through the patronage and support of Cedella Marley, the daughter of the late superstar reggae icon, Bob Marley.

Fans of Bob Marley will no doubt be familiar with his love of sport in general and soccer in particular.  This passion has extended on through his daughter and Jamaica’s ebullient and talented women’s team.

Jamaica’s Bond-Flasza celebrates after scoring the winning goal against Panama last year which qualified the ‘Reggae Girlz’ for the 2019 Women’s World Cup.

 Sport in the Americas and Caribbean and their connection to popular culture and politics:  Women’s World Cup History/Preview 2019

Friday, December 14,  2018 at 1:00  PM   

Ubiquitous tournament mascot Xochitl from Women’s Mexico City Tournament in 1971.

Tune in this afternoon as Danielle and Doc discuss the Woman’s World Cup to be played out in 2019.  Qualifying teams from the Americas include Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, surprise upstart Jamaica and a strong United States team will take on teams from Europe (France, Norway, Germany, Spain, England, Scotland, Sweden, Netherlands), Africa (Nigeria, South Africa, Cameroon) and Asia (South Korea, China, Japan, Thailand) plus Australia and New Zealand.
But it was 1971 in Mexico where women’s football (soccer) got its first major intentional and marketing impetus with a 6-team tournament that drew 110,000 fans in a Mexico vs. Denmark final. We’ll talk about that ground-breaking event, and how almost a half a century later, the Women’s World Cup will truly be one of the great international sporting events of the year in 2019 with an estimated 1 billion people viewing the games.
