FFB holds concert for Jaguars as they leave for Gold Cup

The Belize Jaguars, the national football selection, is leaving the country on Friday to the United States. The team will participate in the Gold Cup and its first game will be played against the United States in Portland, Oregon on Tuesday night. The Football Federation of Belize has raised most of the money needed for the journey but it is still short of fifty thousand dollars. The F.F.B. organized a national telethon and other organizations stepped up with other fundraisers including a dance and a barbecue. And though they leave on Friday, the Belize City Council is planning a concert to continue the fundraising drive for the team. News Five spoke to Berne, one of the performers, who is also the host of Saturday’s concert at the ITVET in Belize City.
