Ungmennafélags Njarðvíkur is an Icelandic multi-sports club from Njarðvík, Reykjanesbær, on the south-west peninsula of Iceland.[2] It is mostly known for its basketball team.

Colours[edit]

Njarðvík adopted their green strip after two of their directors watched a basketball game with Boston Celtics in the USA. They liked the green colour so much that they decided that Njarðvík should wear green from now on.
