Newcastle United Foundation Launches Man V Fat League

Newcastle United Foundation is delighted to launch our first Man V Fat league.

The programme, a 14 week FA endorsed football league, is designed exclusively for men who are overweight or obese โ€“ having a body mass index of 27.5 or higher

MAN v FAT combines football with easy to follow diet and lifestyle advice as well as 24/7 online and offline support.

Thereโ€™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, so itโ€™s a real team effort.

Currently the Newcastle league, which takes place at The Turf @ St. Johns Primary School in Benwell, has six teams taking part with 51 players stepping up every week!

Oliver Bell, Health and Wellbeing Project Officer at Newcastle United Foundation said: โ€œWeโ€™ve been delighted by the reaction by our players so far. Theyโ€™ve all worked incredibly hard and weโ€™re already seeing some incredible weight loss from some of our participants, as well as some great football.โ€

โ€œIโ€™d encourage any men looking to lose weight, play some football, and make some new mates to come along and get involved!โ€

Andrew Shanahan, Managing Director of said, “We’re thrilled to offer this to men across the UK. We’ve seen that MAN v FAT Football can have an incredible impact on the health of our players with 95% of players losing weight and 93% reporting health improvements from curing sleep apnoea to huge improvements in blood pressure and joint pain. Across 2016 our players lost more than 7 tonnes in weight and we know that weโ€™re going to smash that with leagues like Newcastle United Foundationโ€™s.โ€
