The daughter of reggae legend Bob Marley is supporting a new crowdsourcing campaign to raise funds to get the Jamaican women's soccer team into the 2015 World Cup.

No Caribbean team has ever made the cut, but designer Cedella Marley is confident her efforts will give the athletes the edge.

She and her family are offering up incentives for donors who pledge cash on the website.

The national team hopes to raise $50,000 (£29,400) to pay for equipment and travel expenses.

Incentives include a Bob Marley T-shirt signed by Jamaican Olympic gold-medallist sprinter Usain Bolt and a Marley shirt signed by Brazilian soccer legend Pele.

Earlier this year (14), the Jamaican bobsled team raised more than $50,000 (£29,400) via a crowdsourcing campaign to help them fund their trip to the Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia.
