Reggae Boyz, Costa Rica tickets go on sale
Tickets for Jamaica's Reggae Boyz much-anticipated international friendly against Costa Rica inside the National Stadium on Sunday went on sale yesterday at selected locations across the island.
In a release from the Jamaica Football Federation, patrons were reminded that tickets will not be available for purchase at the venue on match day and that all effort must be made to get tickets early.
Access to the grandstand area will cost $3,000 and $2,500, while bleachers tickets will be sold for $1,000.
In the meantime, several members of Jamaica's overseas-based contingent which will be on show during the clash, were in good form over the weekend for their respective clubs.
Dane Richards of the New York Red Bulls and the Colorado Rapids' Omar Cummings were in particularly good form after impressive showings from their respective Major League Soccer (MLS) outfits.
On the night when former Arsenal great Thierry Henry scored his first goal in MLS for the Red Bulls, it was Richards who was the star of the show, providing the assist for the Frenchman after scoring one of his own.
In what has been described as the best game of his career in New York, the speedy Richards bolted through the San Jose Earthquakes back line before rifling a shot into the net in the 46th minute of their clash. He returned to turn provider for Henry as the Red Bulls ran out 2-1 winners.
Cummings was also at his best after his strike helped the Rapids to a convincing 3-0 win over the Houston Dynamo for whom another Jamaican, Lovel Palmer, received a straight red card.
Both strikers will be looking to replicate their good form when the Reggae Boyz tackled the Costa Ricans in one of two friendly internationals lined up for the team in the coming days.
After the Costa Rica clash, the team will fly to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where they will come up against Peru two days later.
The team is expected to stage their first training session tomorrow afternoon at a venue to be confirmed.
