Jamaican players who advanced to the round of 16 of the Women's World Cup declare boycott of national team

Jamaican players who advanced to the round of 16 of the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup declared a 'boycott' of the national team, saying they did not receive proper compensation.

Some players who played in Jamaican uniforms in the Women's World Cup announced on the 21st (local time) through social networking service (SNS),

"All 23 players who participated in the World Cup decided not to play in the CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup qualifiers."

In this statement, the players condemned, "We have come to the conclusion that we have no choice but to take such a dramatic stance in order to end the unfair treatment by the Jamaica Football Association," and "We cannot fulfill the role we set out to play under the conditions created by the association."

The national team is about to play a home game against Panama on the 25th in the Gold Cup preliminary round, a regional competition.

The Jamaica Football Association announced the 23-player entry the day before, but did not select a single player who had experience in the Women's World Cup held last July.

The players criticized, "We had to endure poor communication and low-quality organization and management.

Receipt of prize money is increasingly being delayed," and "We were not properly rewarded for our historic performance at the World Cup."

Jamaican players advanced to the round of 16 for the first time in history at this year's Australia-New Zealand Women's World Cup.

They pushed 'strong' Brazil to third place in Group F, taking second place in the group after France.

Jamaica, which drew 0-0 with France in the first game of the group stage and defeated Panama 1-0 in the second game, boasted a 'salty defense' that drew 0-0 with Brazil in the third game.

Afterwards, they lost 0-1 to Colombia and withdrew from the round of 16, but in the 2019 tournament in France.

They reached the finals for the first time and made history by advancing to the round of 16 for the first time in four years.

In accordance with FIFA policy, all players on the team that made it to the round of 16 will receive $60,000 (approximately 80 million won) in prize money per person.

However, since FIFA distributes the amount to each association rather than to the players, there is a possibility that some associations experiencing financial difficulties may not properly distribute the money to the players.

The Jamaican women's national team had suffered a setback even before the World Cup, with players expressing resentment at poor treatment.

Last June, Jamaican players publicly criticized their country's association, saying they had not received allowances for national team games on time and that support was inadequate.

The mother of midfielder Havana Solon, who was worried that the association would not be able to raise funds to participate in the World Cup, even stepped forward to directly provide support through her fundraising site 'Go Fund Me'.
