Just like Love Island has its live tweeting and fan theories, football fans are finding extra ways to make the Euros more exciting, with some competitive bidding on old jerseys.
The delayed tournament has re-ignited interest in old football memorabilia and people can make a tidy three figure sum on Ebay.
Some of the rarest and most iconic jerseys can go for upwards of a thousand euro, with shirts from Manchester United and Celtic – two of Ireland’s best supported teams – selling for over €4,000 on eBay recently.
eBay’s Head of Commercial Operations for Ireland Colin McCallion said: “The Euros are back and purchases for football shirts are on the up.
“We’re certainly seeing a trend for vintage, retro and signed shirts among the highest priced listings, so now’s the time to raid the back of the wardrobe for any forgotten jerseys that could bring you in some serious cash, even though Ireland won’t be bringing home a trophy.”
