Belgium will not be in Poland and Ukraine over the summer, as they failed to qualify from Group A, but this set of fans are not letting their passion go to waste.

Here's what the fans wrote about themselves on the eBay ad:

"For sale: Belgian soccer fans for Euro 2012. Second hand but mint condition. Not been used since FIFA World Cup 2002.

"Once again we Belgians have no team to root for at the Euro 2012 soccer championship. Since tournaments are much more fun when you have a favourite team, we decided to put our fandom for sale at ebay.

"All profits will be sent directly to Unicef."

The fans are not limiting themselves to one club through the whole tournament though.

"Once the team is eliminated, we will grieve for 24 hours and then put ourselves for sale again on ebay. Hopefully joined by the previous winner since he or she will also have become an orphaned soccer fan by then."

The fans' eBay page jokingly stated that they were willing to indulge in "slight hooliganism".

"Slight hooliganism is available at extra cost. We can, for example, kick a pigeon or smoke in a non-smoking area if such pleases our master."

The auction ends on June 7. You can visit the Belgium fans' page here.
