“We are excited that Jamaica was selected as the first stop for the World Cup Trophy Tour, which will give local football fans an opportunity to celebrate the historic achievement of our Reggae Girlz,” said Donovan White, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism. “We are equally thrilled to have the Reggae Girlz playing on home soil.  Sports enthusiasts should go out and get their tickets early, as that’s all that will be required in order to get a glimpse of the coveted prize up close.
