A new football league is being launched in Redbridge for men who are overweight.

Man v Fat Football is an FA endorsed 14-week league to help males who have piled on the pounds.

Local men who want to tackle their weight issues now have the chance to join this “incredibly successful” weight loss league.

In other areas 95per cent of players lost weight with some players losing up to 70lbs during the programme.

A Vision, Redbridge Culture & Leisure spokeswoman said: “Man v Fat combines football with easy to follow diet and lifestyle advice as well as 24/7 online and offline support.

“Extra goal bonuses are awarded depending on the pounds lost by the players, so it becomes a real team effort.”

If you are a chubby man who loves football, or have one in your life, why not sign up.

To register interest in the new Redbridge league visit manvfatfootball.org/redbridge.
