Greens

Does anyone know how I'd say the Greens (plural noun) in Latin (in the sense of a football team or political party 'The Greens'). Would it be Viridia?

"Viridia" if neuter, "viridēs" otherwise. In the case of a football team, you could probably make a case for either ("Viridēs" if "greens" is meant to refer to the players; "Viridia" otherwise). With a political party it might be better to stick with e.g. "factiō viridis".
