A member of CFU and CONCACAF, Jamaica has won the Caribbean Cup six times, with their latest win being the 2014 Caribbean Cup when they beat Trinidad and Tobago in the final.

On 7 August 2010, the national team adopted the nickname Les Matinino, which pays tribute to the history of the island.

In 1990 on the day of the final, an insurrection in Trinidad and Tobago, the host nation, by the Jamaat al Muslimeen forced an abandonment of the tournament with only the final and 3rd place play-off game remaining. Also, the tournament was not held in 2000, 2002 and 2003.

Jamaat al Muslimeen

The Jamaat al Muslimeen is a religious Muslim organisation within the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.

The 2017 edition of the tournament was the 19th and final. The tournament was discontinued in favor of participation in the CONCACAF Nations League. [1]

Extract from the autobiography 'Sense of Humour Sense of Justice' by Caribbean Cup founder Fred Rumsey. "Having been introduced to Shell Barbados by former Welsh Rugby player John Taylor the company contacted me with a request to come up with some ideas as to where their Caribbean sponsorship could be placed to maximise their image within the region, having lost the Shell Cricket Shield event. After some deliberation I settled on three worthwhile alternatives, prepared a feasibility study and business plan for each and in the summer of 1988 journeyed to Barbados to present them to Peter Lane and his promotional staff.

It was the latter presentation which received the overwhelming support from Peter Lane and his team and the Shell Caribbean Cup was born."

Sponsors

Over the years, the tournament has been named after its respective sponsors. Shell had sponsored the competition since its inception in 1989. [2]

Royal Dutch Shell Anglo-Dutch oil company

Royal Dutch Shell plc, commonly known as Shell, is a British-Dutch oil and gas company headquartered in the Netherlands and incorporated in the United Kingdom. It is one of the six oil and gas "supermajors" and the fifth-largest company in the world measured by 2018 revenues. Shell was first in the 2013 Fortune Global 500 list of the world's largest companies; in that year its revenues were equivalent to 84% of the Dutch national $556 billion GDP.

By February 1996, Jack Warner had announced a new sponsorship from sports apparel company Umbro for the 1996 Caribbean Cup. [3] The tournament was also co-sponsored by Umbro in 1997 before Shell re-attained sole-sponsorship for the 1998 event.

In October 1998, during the first and only year of sponsorship from the Asia Sport Group (now World Sport Group), the competition changed its name to Copa Caribe. CFU's chairman Jack Warner stated that the change was made to highlight the competition being a branch of the Copa de Oro. [4] Florida-based Inter/Forever (now Traffic Group) agreed a sponsorship deal to replace the Asia Sport Group agreement in January 1999. [5] The competition retained the title Copa Caribe for the 1999 and 2001 editions.

There was no competition held in 2003, instead teams focused on a group-stage only qualifying tournament.

Caribbean-based mobile phone company Digicel took over the sponsorship in 2004, [6] in June 2007 they agreed to sponsor the 2008 and 2010 events. [7] The 2012 and 2014 editions of the competition had no title sponsor, while the last tournament (in 2017) was sponsored by Scotiabank. [8]
