We know from experience that having a support network makes all the difference when you’re trying to lose weight. As COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease, we’re relishing the opportunity to get back on the football pitch, and we’re making the most of supporting our teammates in person. You can find your weight loss support network too when you join the MAN v FAT community by signing up for your local MAN v FAT Football club.

What is MAN v FAT Football?

We’re a weight loss programme for football-loving men. 90% of our players lose weight through an exciting combination of football, team support and all the resources you need to win your battle against fat.

MAN v FAT Football is football with a difference. Exclusively for men with a BMI of 27.5 or over, players score not just goals on the pitch but also bonus goals based on their weight loss progress, meaning your weight loss has a very real impact on your team’s performance.

Our football clubs run across the country, and we’ve helped over 5,000 men lose weight and improve their health. Click here to find your nearest MAN v FAT Football club.

Losing weight together

Community is a key aspect of MAN v FAT Football. You can join a MAN v FAT Football club on your own (and in fact, most players do) and you’ll be placed in a team along with other men who share the same weight loss goals.

Making weight loss a team game is what makes MAN v FAT Football so successful. But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our players have to say.

The support of my teammates keeps me accountable, and that has given me so much motivation to lose weight. It's given me a great focus.

MAN v FAT Football weight loss story

The support of my teammates and an open forum to talk about the good and bad points of weight loss without fear of judgement has been incredibly helpful in my weight loss journey.

Why focus on getting healthier now?

Over two-thirds (67%) of men in the UK are overweight or obese.

Extra weight can make it harder for us to fight against diseases like cancer, heart disease and COVID-19.

People living with obesity are twice as likely to be hospitalised with COVID-19 and more likely to be admitted to intensive care, require advanced treatment and potentially have poorer outcomes.

To be a healthy weight, you should aim to have a BMI below 25 and above 18.5.

What our players say

MAN v FAT has given me motivation. I now get up every day with the determination to do myself proud.

Dan Church, who lost 10 stone

The competition from the guys in my league has definitely kept me on track – it spurs me on when I’m struggling, and I've never had that before.

Dean Bax, who lost 9 stone

The weight loss has made the world of difference! I feel so much fitter, and exercising is easier, and more enjoyable by the day
