MANvFAT Football

Where the biggest losers win 

MANvFAT football is a 14-week, six-a-side football league, which has been specifically designed to support overweight and obese men looking to improve their physical and mental health. 

Is MANvFAT Football for me?

Teams of men play weekly football with a weigh-in before kicking off. The goals from the game are added to bonus goals teams can earn through their performance on the scales. The process gamifies weight loss and makes this the only league where losers win!

The league is designed to support men with a multi-layered behaviour change process which engages men through the game and through online and offline support networks.

Players must have a minimum BMI of 27.5 to be eligible for the league.
