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.
For live leagues (these are 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 The MAN v FAT Weight Loss Manual (RRP £12.99). You then sign up to a league and pay £25 per month.
For planned leagues (these are leagues that will become live leagues when we have enough players signed up to start them) it costs £1 to register as a player. We take this payment to reserve your place and so that we can verify your identity. When we have enough players to start the league you would be charged the remaining £8.99 to register fully and when your league started you would pay £25 per month. If you cancel the direct debit mandate with us then we assume that you do not want to be part of the league any more and you are deleted from the system.
If you are joining a free league then you pay nothing to register or play - your costs have already been covered by a funder, most often your local authority or a national funding body such as Sport England. Sometimes the funder asks us to take a deposit for players to ensure that they turn up - if this is the case then this deposit will be refunded providing you attend (which seems fair!)
The cost to your health of not signing up is potentially tragic
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 weight.
