 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.
