HARRISON N.J. (AP) - Sky Blue of the National Women’s Soccer League has rebranded itself as NJ/NY Gotham FC.

The New Jersey-based club wanted to recognize its growing reach across the region. It involved fans in the process.

In addition to the new name, the team has a new crest with a crown that echoes the Statue of Liberty and an ‘N’ with a combined ‘Y/J.’ The team’s primary color will remain sky blue, along with black and white - an homage to the team’s supporters’ group Cloud 9.

“The club has a tremendous history and close relationship with its fans, so it was important we listened and remained completely openminded throughout the process. What emerged is a new brand that is overwhelmingly fan driven, respectful of the club’s past, and representative of a promising future,” team general manager Alyse LaHue said in a statement Tuesday.
