The collaboration between the organizations includes the sale of the jerseys on the Dreamville Festival website leading up to the festival and on-site at the festival itself. Jerseys will also be available for purchase at NCFC’s online merchandise store and at home games. NCFC has adopted the Dreamville Festival colors for its logo on its white jersey, while Dreamville Festival has adopted NCFC’s colors for its logo on its blue jersey.
