‘I need to lose the moobs – enough said’: The Notts football league for fat-fighting players

A five-a-side league is helping Nottingham men shed the pounds – by counting weight loss as part of the score.

Man Vs Fat Football, based at Harvey Hadden Sports Village, Bilborough, is aimed at men with a Body Mass Index (BMI) – an indicator of size and health – above 27.5. over 25 is considered overweight.

The league helps players to lose weight by holding games every week and running a WhatsApp group for advice and support.

Actual goals only make up half the score for each team in a game – the other half is the collective weight loss of the team for the past week.
