Please see the below info that was sent out to all registered players this morning…

I am writing to inform you that the launch of the MAN v FAT Football league in Hartlepool has been postponed as we haven’t hit the minimum 40 players needed to start the league. We are late in announcing this as we are waiting for confirmation from the funder about when the Hartlepool league will be delayed until, although this is likely to be January 2019. We apologise for the short notice and any inconvenience that this may have caused.

We remain absolutely committed to bringing MAN v FAT Football to Hartlepool and in line with that we will soon be announcing 8 weeks of Come and Try sessions in the build up to the launch. You will be able to access these sessions for free. It would be great if you could let friends, family and colleagues know about these sessions so we can grow the numbers signed up for the league. Any new players simply have to register at

While you wait for the Hartlepool league to launch we have two other options within 20 miles. The first is the free Middlesbrough league (details here - and the second is the paid for Sunderland league - details here If you wish you can access either of these leagues simply by replying to this email and telling me which league you want to switch to. You can then access the Hartlepool league free of charge when it launches.

There is also a league WhatsApp group for Hartlepool and this is a great way to communicate prior to the league launch, where we can share ideas and motivation in the build up:

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have and apologies again for the late notice.

Kind regards
