Jamaica's senior Reggae Girlz will return to their happy hunting ground in Edinburgh, Texas, for the Concacaf Women's Olympic Championships scheduled to begin early next year.

The Jamaicans have been drawn in Group B, alongside Canada, Mexico and Caribbean neighbours St Kitts and Nevis for the championships, which will qualify two teams from the confederation to the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Reigning World champions USA headline Group A, where they are joined by Central Americans Costa Rica and Panama, as well as Haiti.

Edinburgh was where the Jamaicans kick-started their run towards the historic qualification to the Fifa Women's World Cup in France, and they will again be hoping that fortune again favours them as they seek to again etch their names in the annals of the country's sporting history.

They will again face Canada, who they lost to 0-2 during the group stages of the qualifiers. The North Americans, along with Mexico, will prove tough for the Jamaicans who will have to beat one or both teams in order to secure one of two spots from the group to the semi-finals.

Jamaica defeated Cuba, US Virgin Islands, Barbados and St Lucia in their Caribbean phase of qualifiers in September.
