Downsound Records CEO Joe Bogdanovich says his company is pleased to have played its part at a recent football conference held to raise support for the Jamaica Reggae Girls in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.


The conference, which was held February 15, proved to be very successful with widespread support from the USA Jamaican diaspora, Jamaican government and football constituents - all with one common goal.

The programme was broadcast during DJ Wayne's show on Irie FM while Nicholas Evans reported. The theme song used was Tonight, which was recorded by dancehall star Khago, one of Downsound Records' signed artistes.

The event was also sponsored by Contractor's Music Marketing.

One of the immediate goals is to assist the Girls with international training camps, some of which are expected to be hosted in South Florida after city officials, including the mayors of three cities - Lauderdale Lakes, Miramar and Lauderhill - gave their commitment to play part in the process.

Bogdanovich and head of Contractor's Music Marketing Sean 'Contractor' Edwards, were particularly inspired by the broad-based commitment of support for the night-time conference, which also included leaders and representatives from the business sector.

"We are very pleased to have played our part in a forum of nation development," said Bogdanovich.

"Downsound Records is about growth and we believe entertainment and sports are inter-related, so it was very easy for us to get involved in a programme of such magnitude."

It was he first of its kind, an awareness conference for the sake of Jamaica's Women Football programme - and the Reggae Girls in particular. Minister with responsibility for Sports Natalie Neita-Headley, was full of praise for those who have taken up the cause of the Reggae Girls.

She believes women's football has been suffering for years and needed a sustained lifeline. The evening was successful and Jamaica's head coach for the women's Under-17 and 20 squads Vin Blaine expressed his delight at the outpouring support. "We are very happy and excited about the future," he said.

President of the Jamaica Football Federation Captain Horace Burrell, said the quality of the turnout demonstrated in a profound way the commitment to the women's game.
