MAN v FAT Football Set For Kick Off!

MAN v FAT Football – an FA-endorsed 14 week football league exclusively for the 68% of UK men who are overweight or obese launches in September at Bradley Football Development Centre, Grimsby.  

Local men who want to tackle their weight issues now have the chance to join this incredibly successful weight loss league. MAN v FAT combines football with easy to follow diet and lifestyle advice as well as 24/7 online and offline support.

If you want to give it a try there will be a taster session on Friday 14th September from 6pm to 8pm. Registration will take place on Friday 21st September from 6pm to 8pm.

The first session will kick off on Friday 28th September from 6pm to 8pm and will run every Friday for the next 14 weeks.

The unique aspect of MAN v FAT Football is that players weigh in before every game. So the final results are decided not just on the score on the pitch, but as a result of goal bonuses that teams earn from their weight loss. This enables players with limited mobility and disabilities to join the teams and still be a top performer for their side, simply by losing weight each week.

There’s weigh-ins before each game, but this is then followed-up by a 30 minute game of six-a-side football. Extra goal bonuses are awarded depending on the pounds lost by the players, so it becomes a real team effort.

The MAN v FAT Football program will be delivered by Lincs Inspire at Bradley Football Development Centre. It costs £9.99 to register and is completely free of charge for the first season. The only thing you have to lose is weight…
