Khadija Bunny Shaw’s winning the 2022 Concacaf Women’s Player of the Year testifies that to dream, focus, work extraordinarily hard, and strive to overcome adversities, is a viable path to success.

The country has watched with pride and absolute amazement the rapid growth of the captain of the Jamaica’s National Senior Women’s team, especially since going professional in 2019. To top this prestigious awards list that included accomplished players from the USA and Canada, among others, is an historic achievement for Jamaica. She becomes the first ever awardee from outside of the United States.

“In winning this award, Khadija has enhanced brand Jamaica, but even more so, has offered immense hope to countless young Jamaican female footballers. From playing in the streets of Spanish Town, to St Jago high school, to club, to the national teams, to college and the professional ranks, she has not only paved the football pathway, but has shown the qualities that breed success,” said Michael Ricketts, President of the JFF.

The Jamaica Football Federation wholeheartedly congratulates Khadija, Jamaica’s leading goal scorer across gender and currently the leading goal scorer in the 2023 Women’s Soccer League. She now ascends to an ambassador for Jamaica’s women’s football on the international football stage.
We pray for her continued good health and strength as she prepares to lead our national team at the Women’s World Cup.
