YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
WHAT IS MAN V FAT FOOTBALL?
MAN v FAT Football is a football league only for guys who want to lose weight. Every player is
in the same situation and wants the same thing - to enjoy football, lose weight and get healthier.
Uniquely, the league is decided not just on points won, but pounds lost. We give support to
every player with unique resources, inspiration and 24/7 support to help you lose weight, get
fitter and enjoy the beautiful game. Read one of our player’s views on the league here.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
It costs £9.99 to register as a player, or £14.99 with a free copy of five star rated The MAN v FAT
Weight Loss Manual (RRP £12.99). You then sign up to a league and pay just £6 per week, or
£79.99 for the league. The cost to your health of not signing up is potentially tragic.
HOW MUCH WILL I LOSE?
That depends on how much you put into the league and how much of the support you take (the
more, the better!) In an assessed 14 week pilot scheme run by Solihull Council, players lost 22lbs
on average, with 62% hitting their 5% body weight target. The maximum weight lost by one
player was 67lbs and the maximum bodyweight percentage lost was 26%. 95% of players lose
WHY DO MEN JOIN THE LEAGUES?
Because they love football and hate being fat. They see all the things that their weight is cheating
them of: the ability to play with their children (or how it’s embarrassing their kids), how much
their body hurts with aching joints, snoring and wheezing every time they climb the stairs, never
finding any clothes that fit... the list goes on. All of them join with the motivation to lose weight
and do so in a way that is truly enjoyable and inspiring.
WHAT IF I’M NOT FIT ENOUGH TO PLAY?
Because the leagues are not just decided on the games won on the pitch, but also on the weight
lost off it, you can join a team as a non-playing member. This means that you weigh in every
week and support your team. Your weight loss counts towards your team’s success. When you’ve
lost enough weight to feel comfortable joining in then you can get involved on the pitch.
CAN I JOIN ON MY OWN?
Approximately 80% of players do. We put you into teams and help you to get to know the other
players. Equally, if you have friends, colleagues or family who also want to lose weight then join
with them and you can be in the same team.
WHERE DO YOU HAVE LEAGUES?
The registration form has a list of all the leagues that we currently have available and more are
being added all the time. If we don't have a league near you then choose "No League Near Me" from
the dropdown list and then add in the town or city nearest to you. We'll then look at bringing a
league to your area.
