Hi there @monkey - great to have you on board.
Before you go any further, be sure to read our new member post - it will be your go to guide for starting out with MVF.
There is actually a live league up and running already in Stoke if that is something you’d have been interested in. Here is the link.
Anyway, to touch base with your original question, for a league to get up and running we need 20 players signed up and paid before the wheels can be put fully into motion. This is what usually puts a league starting quickly on hold because many people are interested and wait on concrete details. The main thing is the more that register - the quicker it will get up and running - so if you have any friends or colleagues who may be interested - refer them over! If you do it from the league homepage you can give your friends 50% off MAN v FAT Football Registration and get £5 credit at the MAN v FAT Shop!
In the meantime, keep checking the forum for inspirational weight loss tips and tricks, and any other questions give me a shout.
All the best,
