Jamaica to host Gold Cup qualifiers

IN FOR A TREAT: Jamaican fans (PA)

JAMAICA HAS won the honour of hosting the 2014 Caribbean Football Union Championship, and under head coach Winfried Schafer's Reggae Boyz will be aiming to prove that they are the leading team in the region.

The tournament is scheduled to be contested between November 10-18 in Montego Bay, and it is a qualifier for the prestigious Gold Cup.

The omens are promising for the Boyz, who triumphed as 2008 champions as hosts of the tournament.

As defending champions they retained their crowd at the 2010 event in Martinique yet surprisingly stuttered during the 2012 competition in Antigua and Barbuda, which resulted in failing to qualify for the Gold Cup.

With the leading eight teams in November vying to make a top four finish in order to qualify for the Gold Cup, the side that finishes fifth will have the opportunity to qualify for the Gold Cup via a play-off against the fifth-placed team from Central America.

Jamaica qualify for the event as hosts, with other teams having to compete in a qualifying group tournament that will be staged around the Caribbean.
