Join the league where losers win

Man v Fat Football is a 14-week football league for men who want to lose weight.

Games 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.

It’s not just about football – the programme aims to help every player with unique resources, inspiration and support to help you get active, have some fun and enjoy the beautiful game.

“I gained weight slowly overtime. It creeps up and you think you can’t do anything. Doing Man v Fat makes you realise that you can.”

The Community Sports Foundation are working in partnership with Man v Fat to support men across the county getting more physically active.

Over the 14 weeks, players are put into teams and compete against each other in a local league every Friday evening. Each game lasts 30 minutes and features 6 players per side.

Last season, players lost a total of 220kg.

If you live in Norfolk or the surrounding area and want to make a real change to your health & wellbeing, meet new people and take the first step to a healthier you sign up today.

Registration for the third season will take place at Carrow Park on Friday 28th September at 7pm, and weekly sessions will take place at Open Academy every Friday thereafter.
