A day to remember for our Amazing Losers

Share this article

It’s one of the most keenly sought after events to be a part of among MAN v FAT members, and our Amazing Losers match was once again a very special occasion this year.

34 of our men from around MAN v FAT descended on Millwall on Sunday to celebrate their weight loss successes and to acknowledge their incredible efforts on the MAN v FAT programme.

All players involved in the game had lost 30% of more of their starting body weight since being a MAN v FAT member, with the highest percentage this year being a whopping 45%!

Although some of the football played across our community is of a good standard, the emphasis is always on the weight loss and this game celebrates that at the highest level.

From the initial selection process of the players, it is amazing to see how much weight each of the players have lost and reading their amazing stories has proven inspirational to all involved in the day’s events. 

And this day was made all the more special because the players were able to be joined by friends, family and kids to make the most of the afternoon.

It isn’t every day that you get to play at a Championship stadium, let alone walk out to the Champions League theme knowing that you are one of the biggest weight loss players in the MAN v FAT community!


The day was given an additional special touch thanks to the presence of two former England internationals, with Paul Parker and Terry Butcher leading the guys through the day.

Paul and Terry had some great words of advice for the players and we have since received plenty of positive feedback from both Paul Parker and Terry Butcher about how much they enjoyed the day.

On an occasion like this, the result is almost coincidental, but congrats to the guys who were on Paul’s team for their victory. 

We look forward to building on the successes of this year’s event and welcoming our next batch of Amazing Losers onto the pitch – the hard work never stops!
