A fun way to lose some weight whilst playing football

10 September 2018

Man v Fat football, endorsed by the FA, is a 14-week football league exclusively for the 56% of UK men who are overweight or obese. Currently, there are over 20 million overweight men in the UK, accounting for 7 out of every 10 men.

If you live in Exeter or the surrounding area and want to make a real change to YOUR heath and wellbeing during 2018, have some fun, meet new people and take the first leap to a healthier you, sign up today

Season 3 starts on September 21 at the Cliff Hill Training Ground. Registration takes place on Friday, September 14 at St James Park.
 
Over the 14 weeks, players are put into teams and battle against each other in a local league every Friday evening. The matches are held at Exeter City's Cliff Hill Training Ground on the 4g pitch. Each six-a-side match lasts 30 minutes, and depending on pounds lost by the players, bonus points will be awarded and added to the match score.

The first season saw 65 players lose an incredible combined total of 500KG! Season two has just started with six teams, but there is still time to sign up. Find out how here.

Chris Fenton, joined Man v Fat Football in January and has dropped over FIVE stone. “Man v Fat football gave me a kick up the behind and made me realise how bad my health was. I have more energy and for the first time and I'm able to play with my kids without getting tired. I’m truly grateful for this opportunity and would recommend it to any man.”
