MAN v FAT Football – a 14-week football league exclusively for the 56% of UK men who are overweight or obese – launches in Kettering later this month.
The MAN v FAT Football scheme is coming to Kettering, launching at Kettering Science Academy on Wednesday 11 August at 7pm.
Local men who want to tackle their weight issues now have the chance to join this incredibly successful weight loss league. 95% of players lose weight and some players have lost up to 70lbs during the 14-week league.
MAN v FAT combines football with easy-to-follow diet and lifestyle advice, as well as 24/7 online and offline support. There’s the traditional weigh-ins before each game, but this is then followed up by a 30-minute game of six-a-side football. Extra goal bonuses are awarded depending on the pounds lost by the players.
The new league in Kettering is being delivered in partnership with Northampton Town Community Trust.
Andrew Shanahan, Managing Director of www.manvfat.com, said: "We've seen that MAN v FAT Football can have an incredible impact on the health of our players, with 93% reporting health improvements.”
Andy Dyke at the Football Association, said: “MAN v FAT Football is a brilliant initiative for anyone who wants to address their weight and start working their way back into playing football. The FA is happy to back the scheme and suggest that players visit www.manvfat.com/football to get started.”
MAN v FAT Football launches at Kettering Science Academy on Wednesday 11 August at 7pm.
The scheme normally costs £9.99 to register, but if you sign up using the referral code NorthantsFA you can sign up for just £4.99. Monthly fees also apply.
MAN v FAT Football leagues also operate in Northampton and Peterborough.
