Club supporting programme to help men lose weight

4 October 2018

MAN v FAT Football is a popular weight-loss programme supported by the Northampton Town Community Trust.

Aimed at local men who want to tackle their weight issues, the incredibly successful weight loss scheme has seen 95% of players lose weight, with some losing up to 70 lbs during its 14-week duration. It’s no wonder that MAN v FAT Football leagues are officially endorsed by the Football Association, Sport England and football clubs across the country.

Men aged 18+ with a BMI of over 27.5+ are placed into teams and devise their own team name. A 6 a side football match is then played with the final score being placed into a league, however that is only half the score! Men are then weighed to monitor weekly weight loss with extra goals being scored depending on the number of your team losing weight. Men can also score a 'hat-trick' by losing weight three weeks in a row!!!

The results are then placed into a league setting with teams vying for the top spot and the coveted Man V Fat Football cup.
