EVENT: MAN v FAT Soccer UWA: Registrations open
|MAN v FAT Soccer UWA: Registrations open : Love Soccer? Hate being overweight? You've come to the right place.
UWA Sport and the Psychology of Active, Healthy Living (PAHL) group at The University of Western Australia have partnered with a successful weight-loss program from the United Kingdom (UK) that is designed specifically for men.
MAN v FAT Soccer is for overweight and obese men of any fitness level - every player is in the same situation and wants the same thing. Players join a 6 a-side soccer team and play a match each week, but uniquely, their team's position in the league is decided not just by goals scored on the pitch, but also by weight lost each week.
Realising that most weight loss programs just weren't working for men, the UK founders of the program opened the first MAN v FAT league in January 2016. Just over two years later, there are now over 50 leagues and 4,500 men involved across the UK, and together they've managed to lose over 50,000kg!
If you're a man who has a BMI of 27.5 or higher then you're eligible to join the UWA MAN v FAT league; the first MAN v FAT league anywhere in the world outside the UK! Registration for the first UWA season is just $10; all other costs are being subsidised by UWA Sport.
Registration night: Wednesday 5 September, 6–8pm, UWA Watersports Complex
League dates: Wednesday 12 September–Wednesday 12 December (Wednesday nights, 6-9pm). Weekly competition includes 30-minute soccer match and weigh in before the match.
Location: Riley Oval, University of Western Australia
