MAN v FAT – Football and Festivities

Like any bloke who lives in England, the holiday season has many reasons to celebrate. Great food, family company and a jam-packed TV schedule full of all our favourite football teams.

When the holidays come and go, many of us are left with a feeling of emptiness. Back to our ‘normal’ lives. This year, we suggest using that motivation, dusting off the boots and signing up to one of MAN v FAT’s football leagues. In Surrey, we offer a FREE 14-week season to gents with a BMI of 27.5 or above.

But it’s more than football – much more, in fact.


As MAN v FAT Football continues to grow across the UK, it has become more than just 30 minutes of 6-a-side with a bunch of likeminded men once a week. MAN v FAT offers nutritional guidance to keep your weight loss on track, including some great recipes that can get you back in the groove in the kitchen.

There’s access to a virtual gym with a wide range of classes for all abilities, meaning you’re able to work hard away from the weekly game so the results come easier on and off the pitch. MAN v FAT also provides access to a mental health platform to ensure we take care of ourselves and those around us.

But what makes MAN v FAT Football unique?

Your result on the pitch is only half the story. There are weigh ins each week for every player before they lace up their footy boots – with bonus points awarded for losing 5% and 10% of the player’s starting weight over that season.

And, perhaps most importantly of all, there are thousands of men just like you who are part of the MAN v FAT Community. Whether you’ve had a good day or bad, there’ll be others in the same boat who are sharing that experience and are happy to guide you through it.

Sign up today and be allocated a team, work with men in your local area to play footy and lose weight with the goal of winning the league.
