The Jamaica Federation held its regular monthly meeting at the National Stadium on Sunday and dealt with a number of matter of prime importance to the game.

The biggest and most interesting item of news for football fans contained in the Federation's release is that the visit of the Mexican World Cup team to Jamaica is now on its final stage of arrangements and barring any unexpected eventualities they will be seen in action in two matches at the National Stadium on Sunday, November 1, and Tuesday, November 3.

The Federation dealt with correspondence from Mr. Eric James of Trinidad, the Caribbean Coordinator, setting out the details of the proposed tour by Mexico of the West Indies. The terms and conditions have all been accepted and a reply has been sent to Mr. James and copies to the Mexican Football Federation.

The accepted conditions are that the visitors will travel here at their own expense, that Jamaica will be responsible for accommodation for a part of 24 and all internal transportation, and that after all expenses have been met, the profits from gate receipts, if any, will be given to Mexico.


Two further decisions were taken concerning participation in CONCACAF competitions. Firstly, immediate steps are to be taken to ensure Jamaica's entry into the National CONCACAF Championships to be held in Trinidad in September 1971.
