What Colors Should BYU Fans Wear On Gamedays This Season?
PROVO, Utah – For the past five years, BYU’s marketing efforts for Cougar football game days have focused on having their national fan base wearing the same color for a specific game.
BYU has come a long way from the days of when then Cougar Stadium used to be filled with fans wearing an assortment of colors in the stands. You would have thought it looked like a bowl of skittles in the stands. That’s not the case anymore.
The three colors that BYU fans will cycle through this season consist of the school’s official colors. Navy blue, white, and royal blue.
Royal Blue has seen a significant spike in branding from the BYU football program on social media in recent seasons. This year, royal blue is the color that fans are being asked to wear the most. For seven of the 12 weeks in the 2019 season, fans are being asked to wear royal.
The BYU Store put out the official schedule for what color BYU fans should wear in 2019.

Last year, fans were only asked to wear royal blue three different times. Despite the popularity of royal blue, navy blue is still the primary color in terms of merchandise sales according to BYU’s licensing director Adam Parker and it really isn’t close.
Royal Blue makes up less than 20 percent of BYU’s merchandising sales in the previous years. Maybe that number will see an increase in 2019 as more options become available.
The color scheme of @BYUFootball uniforms is always a hot topic in Provo. What color would you like to see more of this season?
