St George's Park summer 2018 Colchester

Hello MAN v FAT Footballers all over the UK.

We have some exciting news for you. Below you will find the first instalment regarding this summer’s MAN v FAT Football national tournament!

Following an all round stellar performance in December this tournament has a lot to live up to. This is the first of two annual tournaments this year and all leagues that launched before April 1st 2018 are invited to join us. For those leagues launching April, May and June this year please do not worry, we will see you in December for our second tournament of the year.

We are also very pleased to announce that once again this tournament will take place at St George’s Park home to England’s 28 national teams.

This year will see players from 44 leagues across the UK go head to head to be crowned the top MAN v FAT Football league in the Country. Previous winners include Fox Hollies (Feb 17) and the current trophy holders Bristol (Dec 17).

When? – Saturday 28th July 2018 10:00 – 17:00 (Team sign in from 09:00)

Where? - St George’s Park National Football Centre, Tatenhill, Burton upon Trent DE13 9RN

What do I do now? – Stay focused on your 5% weight loss target. Only players that have achieved their 5% target or more in their current (current being their season running at time of deadline day) or previous season (the season immediately before the current season, no previous seasons will be considered).

The closing date for this will be 31st May 2018.

Players are asked to comment on this post with your name (first and last, no nicknames) Your league location (please ensure you only register on your own league post). Please ensure that you comment only once you have achieved your 5% target.

*Please note that any player that enters their details incorrectly on the leagues forum post may be overlooked for the draw. MAN v FAT Football will not take responsibility for this.

15 players will be selected from each location to represent your league at St George’s Park. The first 10 to be selected will go forward to play in July’s tournament. A further 5 are selected as first reserves should anyone not be able to attend the event. These players will be chosen in the order that they are drawn. (Only 10 players will travel to the tournament to represent each league)

Keep your eyes peeled for more details to come and good luck to you all.

Sorry but only just seen this. Maybe next one.

Good Morning all.

We hope you are excited to find out your squad for the upcoming St Georges Park Tournament.

Leagues that have had 11 or more eligible entrants will be able to find their draw footage on Youtube. If your league had 10 or less eligible players we will publish a squad list here. You can also find the link to this page on your homepage.

Im pleased to confirm that your footage/squad list will be available from 12pm today.

Kind Regards - The MAN v FAT Football Team.

Given that neither of our reserve players have experienced this before and I have, I’m going to withdraw so that they can experience it too. Paul Farrelly should be moved to the squad as our first reserve.
