Man v Fat

Man v Fat League launches in Chester-le-Street

Durham FA are working in partnership with Chester-le-Street & District Area Action Partnership, Durham County Council’s Sport & Culture team and Wellbeing For Life to deliver the Durham MAN V FAT League.

MAN v FAT is a football league for men who want to lose weight and get healthier. Uniquely, the league is decided not just on points won but also on pounds lost. 24/7 support and inspiration will be provided to help men lose weight, get fitter, meet new people and enjoy the beautiful game. Through this approach 95% of players lose weight and get fitter.

Generally, a MAN v FAT football league is 16 weeks, including 1 registration week, 14 weeks of football, and 1 ‘friendly’ week. The registration session gives everyone a chance to meet each other and get assigned to their teams. Captains and team names are decided and players are placed onto a WhatsApp Group which is used to maintain enthusiasm and motivation. There are a number of other leagues that are running across the Country.

Registration to the Durham County MAN v FAT League takes place from 7:00pm on Wednesday 3rd April at Durham County FA, DH3 3SJ. The cost of each session is £2.00 per week (plus a refundable deposit). League kick off is 7:00pm – 9:00pm on Wednesday 10th April. For further information and inspiration please visit  Call 0845 163 0042 or e-mail and sign up today.
