In Football (soccer terms) relates to a person or persons who only support or follow a certain team because they are successful and win trophies on a regular occasion. The trend started with Liverpool in 1980's, but was hit out the park by the amount of Manchester United fans that sprouted up in the 90's. Arsenal and Chelsea are two other teams that have small glory hunting followings surrounding them.

Manchester United continue to be the most well supported club in England, including being the third most popular club in London, and the next most well supported club in every City and Town in the country after the specific places home town teams. United fans are also called "plastics", very few attend games, but most are considered to be the most arrogant type of fans around. Most are regarded as not true football fans and are nothing but convenience supporters.
"United fans dancing in the streets of Exeter last night again after that win, can't stand glory hunters"

"my brother has never been to a game, he has last seasons strip and watches the highlights every other week but still bigs them up like he's connected to the club, what a glory hunter"

One who lacks the imagination to support their own local football club, and so jumps on the bandwagon of supporting whatever (usually lucky) team that happens to be winning trophies at the time - especially Liverpool FC but also occasionally Man Utd FC or Chelsea FC. Would never go near a real life football match - prefers to watch on Sky TV, whom as we all know, invented the sport in 1993.
'Now let me see. I come from Cornwall, I'm good at shitting in my hand and throwing it at people, and I'm looking for a football team that have the entry rules for competitions changed simply to allow us to enter. I know, I'll support Liverpool FC. Eh, glory-hunter? What's that, never heared of it'
