Mayor of Montego Bay and Chairman of the Local Organizing Committee for the Under-17 CONCACAF Championship Games, Councillor Charles Sinclair, has called for the full support of corporate Jamaica and citizens of western Jamaica for the Championship, scheduled for February 12 to 28.

“Our hosting of this competition is a great accomplishment, one that is also expected to significantly boost our local economy, as both team members and representatives of CONCACAF, FIFA and the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) will be in Montego Bay throughout February 12 to 28,” the Mayor said.

Jamaica will come alive on February 14, with the commencement of the 2011 CONCACAF Under- 17 Championships at the Trelawny Multi-purpose stadium and the Catherine Hall Sports Complex, which seat 25,000 and 7,000 persons, respectively.                            

According to information coming out of the Local Organizing Committee, Jamaica will first challenge Trinidad and Tobago at Catherine Hall on February 15, starting at 3 p.m. The team has drawn alongside Trinidad and Tobago and Guatemala in Group C of the CONCACAF Championship.
