Colors[edit]

I added team colors - NYCFC is currently using navy with sky blue. Values come from the logo on their website www.nycfc.com. These may or may not change when the official club crest has been unveiled, and if they do this page should be updated to reflect. Until then, the club is consistently using these colors, on team communications, across social media, and in promotional merchandise, and the Nav box should reflect them.

FYI - NYCFC is using sky blue + navy because that's what Manchester City use on their website, which you will notice nycfc.com is an identikit of. Manchester City's colours are sky blue and white, not sky blue and navy. I suspect you will find sky blue and white will be NYCFC's colours in due course.
I don't really mind what colours are used on this template in the meantime, I just wanted to point this out. Falastur2 Talk 18:49, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
You could well be correct, and we'll know eventually. But unlike Man City, NYCFC has been using navy not only in the website but on their temporary crest and as the dominant color of the only merchanside they have to offer - t-shirts featuring that logo. So for the moment, at least, navy is a primary color. But we'll see eventually, and the Nav box should of course be updated whenever they unveil their final design.
