Several Jamaican entertainers will lace up their football boots in support of the Reggae Girlz as they make their historic journey to the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup in France.

The celebrities, who include Billboard chart-topping singer Christopher Martin, Lukie D, Tony Curtis, Papa San, Agent Sasco, and selectors Richie D, Supa Twitch, Juxxy Fiyah and Gairy Sweetness, will play at Ansin Sports Complex located at 10801 Miramar Blvd, Miramar, on Thursday, May 23.

Football veterans Ricardo “Bibi” Gardner and Ian “Pepe” Goodison will join forces with the entertainers.

The event is part of the Reggae Girlz World Cup send-off and fun day celebration in south Florida.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the Reggae Girlz Foundation in support of their journey to the World Cup in France from June 7 to July 7.

“We are excited and honoured to host the Jamaica Reggae Girlz send-off celebration, with events throughout the city of Miramar,” said Vice Mayor Alexandra P Davis.

“Jamaica made history by being the first Caribbean country to qualify for a FIFA Women's World Cup. With the Miramar community having such deep roots in Jamaica and the Caribbean overall, it's a natural connection to host the Reggae Girlz. We are honoured to be a part of such a great experience,” Davis continued.

The star-studded celebrity match will be the opening game before the Reggae Girlz tackle FC Surge USA.

Reggae Girlz global ambassador and designer/singer Cedella Marley will be in attendance. Jamaica's Consul General Oliver Mair and the Reggae Girlz Foundation, with support from Davis, will officially welcome the team to south Florida for a week of activities from May 20-24.
