Current season

Jersey Blues FC are an American soccer team based in Morristown, New Jersey, United States. Founded in 2007, the team plays in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid, in the Keystone Conference. Much like the New Zealand All Blacks use the Haka to strike fear in their enemy, the Colonials are known for the prematch chant, the "belly blaster", for intimidation. This ritual requires all players to lie on their backs while the keeper blows each one a raspberry on his stomach.

The team plays its home games at Robert T. Shields Field on the campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University College at Florham in nearby Madison, New Jersey. The team's colors are burgundy, white and gold.

The Colonials organization is owned and operated by the New Jersey Soccer Group, a management company for a family of soccer-based companies offering soccer services in New Jersey.
