    Hi,
    I am starting a soccer ball brand! I want to leverage how important league colors are, but I do not want to pay any licensing fees. I want to gear the balls toward youth 12 – 17 and support their team’s colors.
    Any suggestions on how to go about figuring what colors I should use in my ball designs?
    Thoughts?

    Thank you
