A new father is putting his son's soccer allegiance up for auction to raise money for charity, letting the highest bidder decide whether 7-month-old Eddie Charters will root for Manchester United or Manchester City.

His father, Ian, roots for Watford, a Championship division club located outside of London, but has relocated his family to Manchester and realizes it will be a tall order to get his son to root for his preferred team, reports the Manchester Evening News.

"I'll be fighting a losing battle trying to get my son to support my team [Watford]. Frankly, I wouldn't want to inflict that on the poor child anyway."

Charters is raising money for Bliss, a charity that helps premature babies. His son was born six weeks premature and his weight fell to below four pounds during the first few days after birth.
