About Man V Fat Football
Man V Fat Football is a football league like no other, designed exclusively for overweight men of any fitness level who want to enjoy football, lose weight and get healthier. Unlike other football leagues, the league is not just decided on matches won and lost, but also upon the collective weight loss of each team. Expert 24/7 support is available to all participants
So how much weight can you expect to lose? In an assessed 14-week pilot scheme run by Solihull Council, players lost an average of 22lbs, with 62% achieving their 5% body weight target. The maximum bodyweight percentage lost was 26%, with the maximum weight lost by one player totalling 67lbs. Overall 95% of players lost weight.
Currently there are two leagues up and running in Tyne & Wear, one in Newcastle and one in Sunderland, supported by the likes of the Newcastle United Foundation, Foundation of Light and the FA. Sessions currently run on a Monday night in Newcastle and on a Wednesday night in Sunderland. Man V Fat Football are also looking to establish a league in Wallsend.
Worried about joining on your own? Fear not, approximately 80% of players do, you’ll be assigned a team and the coaches will help you to get to know the other players in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
What about cost? For leagues that are currently running, it costs £9.99 to register as a player, or £17.99 with a copy of the five-star rated MAN v FAT Weight Loss Manual (RRP £12.99). You then sign up to a league and pay £25 per month.
So what are you waiting for? Sign up today and join a group of likeminded men using the power of football to change their lives for the better.
