So What Happens Next?

You have signed up, got your welcome email and clicked the link that’s got you to here! Hopefully your excitement is building, you have started getting used to the forum and are chatting to guys who have signed up for the same league (if you haven’t posted yet then go for it, it will settle the nerves and give you some faces to look for at registration).

You should feel comfortable asking any questions here no matter how big or small, if you’re wondering about something then I guarantee someone else is too.

The next step of your journey will see you attend the registration session for your league. All details of dates, times and location can be found in the original post and on your league homepage. There isn’t any football at your registration session so you can dress casually. Although we recommend trying to dress in similar clothing to that which you will be wearing on game nights to get the most accurate weigh ins each week.

At registration, we will introduce you to the league and how it works, take your starting weight, height and waist measurement and you will have the opportunity to take some photos for your records (I can’t recommend this highly enough as the transformation of so many players is staggering, it’s nice to have your own personal record and we even have a feature on your homepage to help you with this). You will also be introduced to your team and league coach who will be there to support you on your journey to a fitter healthier lifestyle. Each team will have a WhatsApp group created for it and will be given a team colour.

There is also still time to get your family, friends or work colleagues involved and you can support each other on the journey. Most men are notorious for being secret dieters and this is often our downfall, share your experience and get motivated to hit your targets and be successful.

Lets Smash it, Ben, MAN v FAT League Administrator.


Hi all

Well i’ve Signed on the dotted line and wait with baited breath for registration and the league to start.

I haven’t played football for at least 10 years and not sure how the knees will perform but, hopefully, the more weight that comes off the better the knees will be.

I think i’m looking forward to it, time will tell, but for now good luck to all those joining up at Kidderminster.



Me too mash


Looking forward to getting out there and playing and losing weight. What gear will we need ( studs / astros) cheers ben


Most pitches are artificial, so moulded boots/ astros will do. Many venues won’t allow metal studs on a 4G pitch.


I have recently received a text to say that I didn’t pay registration but I have received an email to say that my direct debit is set up and that my registration of £9.99 will be taken on the 19th so I am a little confused am I in the league of not ?


Hi Ben,

Please drop an email and we can sort this.


Hi all, just sign up and looking forward to getting started need to get the boots dusted off as haven’t played in a few years.


Hi how long are the games and size of the teams


Games are 30 mins each - team sizes vary on the numbers in the league, but all matches will be played with six on the pitch at once, with a couple of roll on roll off subs.


Hi, how many have you got signed up? I would prefer to join the Worcester league but it’s not set up yet so was also just wondering if I join this league would the option be there in the future to swap leagues (unless I’m loving it of course)…
Do we have 1 game per week or a couple on the night?


Hi, is there a whatsapp group for this league?


Just the one game per week matey.


Just signed up and looking forward to getting back on the field and losing weight… Will need to ease myself into playing I think :eyes::joy:


Do we have a game on bank holidays… might be a silly question but just wanted to be sure with Easter coming up.


In all honesty mate. . . I’m not too sure.


@admin any ideas?


It will be dependant on your venue, if its ope it tends to run as normal. Best thing to do to be sure is to check the venue website for their opening schedule.


Greetings all. Want to lose weight so thought I’d give this a go… haven’t played footy in a loooong time!! Looking forward to it!
