Someone who supports a team (especially a football
team) that is neither based in or near the town of their birth nor is even anywhere near where the 'supporter' resides. Although family connection is often cited as a reason for said support, essentially glory supporters' only reason for supporting a team is them having a history, and future chance, of winning trophies. Typically, a glory supporter knows little about football and has rarely, if ever, been to watch 'their' team play.

A person who supports which ever sports team (football, basketball etc...) is doing the best. He/she will say that they have supported that team for 'ages' or that they have 'family ties' to the team or that 'they like the way the team plays.'
