TOP OFFICIALS of CONCACAF Caribbean Zone arrive in Jamaica on Tuesday to hold discussions with the Jamaica Football Federation regarding rules to govern the behavior of players during the Third CONCACAF (preliminary round) championships at the National Stadium from January 11-23.

This was disclosed by a JFF spokesman yesterday. The JFF official said that on Wednesday, CONCACAF officials together with JFF officials, will hold a Press conference.

The official said that the JFF organizing committee is completing last-minute plans and preparations to make the stay of footballers and officials from the four guest countries as pleasant and comfortable:

Cuban footballers and officials, together with the Netherland Antilles squad, will be staying at the National Stadium; Jamaica will live in at the Army Compound, the Trinidadians will be at the Mimosa Lodge and the Haitians at Sandhurst Guest House.

Football boots for the Jamaican players have been donated by the Baltimore (USA) Football Club, through its general manager Mr. Clive Toye and coach Mr. Doug Millward, who visited Jamaica last weekend.

The National Arena football field will be made available for visitors to train daily, while the Jamaican squad will use the training facilities offered by the Army.

Season tickets for the tournament are now on sale at McKenzie's Service Station, 26 Old Hope Road.
