Scotland v Jamaica
Women’s Friendly Match
Tuesday, 28 May 2019, kick-off 7.35pm
Scotland’s Women will play at Hampden Park for the first time in seven years in their final match before the FIFA World Cup, against fellow debutants Jamaica.
Shelley Kerr’s side will run out in front of their home fans on Tuesday, 28 May as they look to break the record crowd total for a women’s game of 4,098, achieved last year against Switzerland.
The fixture will mark the first meeting between Scotland and Jamaica in senior international football.
Nicknamed the Reggae Girlz, the Caribbean nation qualified by beating Panama on penalties in the third-place play-off of the 2018 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
The last time Scotland’s women played at Hampden Park was in 2012, against Spain in the Euro 2013 play-off in a 1-1 draw, in front of 4,058.
Before that match, Kerr’s side will fly to Spain to take on two further France-bound nations in the form of Chile and Brazil.
Scotland will take on Chile on Friday, 5 April, as they look to capitalise on their impressive Algarve Cup showing earlier this month.
Brazil will then provide the opposition three days later, as Kerr’s squad take on the seven-times South American champions for the first time since December 2013.
Upon the announcement of the match at Hampden Park against Jamaica, Shelley Kerr said: “Playing the final match of World Cup preparation at Hampden Park will be an incredibly exciting moment for everyone associated with the national team.
“It gives some of the players a chance to play at the national stadium for the first time and will further aid preparation for the biggest test of their careers in France, where they will play in other impressive stadiums.
“Since qualification the level of interest from the public and media has greatly increased, and it will only continue to grow as we edge closer to the tournament.
“We are now looking to set another record crowd. To have 4,098 for our 2-1 victory over Switzerland during qualification was great but now we’re hopeful that the country continues to get behind us and give the players the send-off they deserve at Hampden Park.”
Ticket details will be announced in due course.
