Wisynco through its WATA brand which announced its sponsorship of the Reggae Girlz last December will be assisting several schools that compete in the ISSA Schools Girls Football Competition, to attend the Reggae Girlz vs Chile match on Sunday at the Montego Bay Sports Complex.
Twenty-three schools from across the island will be treated to a showcase filled with nutrition talk lead by Kamila McDonald, interaction session with a Reggae Girl and the opportunity to view the Women’s World Cup Trophy. These schools come from seven of the eight zones in the ISSA competition, with the exception of the schools in Zone E covering the parish of Clarendon.
A total of five hundred and forty-three school girl footballers as well their coaches will be in the Montego Bay Sports Complex to cheer on the Reggae Girls courtesy of WATA. Western Jamaica is well known for its love of football and the Western based schools will be well represented at the match. They include Anchovy High, Green Pond High, Montego Bay High, Mount Alvernia High, St. James High, Frome Technical, Roger Clarke High and Newell High.
The other schools who will be participating are located in several parishes across the island including Kingston and St. Andrew, St. Elizabeth, Manchester, St. Ann, St. Mary and St. Catherine.
According to Wisynco’s Senior Marketing and Public Relations Manager Tamara Ward, “the assistance to the schools to attend the Reggae Girlz vs Chile match is an expression of our commitment to support the Reggae Girlz and empower young girls through sports and especially football.”
WATA is the hydration sponsor of the JFF’s senior men, women and grassroots programme. This sponsorship has been on-going for over fifteen years. During that time the company has been a major sponsor of multiple FIFA World Cup campaigns for the Reggae Boyz and now the Reggae Girlz as they prepare to compete in the FIFA World Cup for the first time.
