MAN v FAT Football

MAN v FAT Football is a men’s weight loss football community that encourages guys with a BMI of 27.5 or above to get into shape through their love of sport.

Every week, the guys will complete a diary to log their food and activity levels throughout the week and then discuss how their week has been with a league coach who will then provide feedback and support.

After weighing in, the player will then go and play a 28 minute game of small-sided football with their teammates and this result will then be combined with the scales scores to give an overall team total.

They work with NCC to deliver adult weight management services across the region and currently have two Clubs operating in Norwich which are as follows:

MAN v FAT Norwich West

Held on Tuesdays from 19:00 to 21:00 at the FDC Bowthorpe.

MAN v FAT Norwich

Held on Fridays from 19:45 to 21:30 at Thorpe St Andrew High School.

Participants using the code NORFOLK when signing up will be eligible for one funded season (14 weeks) subject to a £10 refundable deposit upon completion courtesy of NCC.

MAN v FAT Challenge

MAN v FAT also runs a MAN v FAT Challenge available to those individuals where football may not be for them, this works along the same framework as the football offer but is fully remote and changes the weekly football match, to weekly habit building challenges. For more information, please visit
