A very warm welcome to our match sponsors for this afternoon's Emirates FA Cup first round tie against Alvechurch, MAN v FAT.
The 2022 World Cup will see countries from around the globe come together in the quest for glory, with 32 nations hoping to lift the trophy in December.
If this year’s tournament is giving you inspiration to pull your boots back on and get into shape in 2023, MAN v FAT Football might be just the thing you’re looking for.
It might be a long time since you last played football and the legs might not move as quick as they used to, but MAN v FAT has a welcoming community of men from across the UK who are getting back into shape via the power of the beautiful game.
Taking place at over 170 locations across the UK, including Cheltenham and Gloucester (as well as Redditch for the visiting fans’ today!), MAN v FAT has a growing community of over 8,500 men of all shapes and sizes improving their health and wellbeing.
Age isn’t a barrier either, with guys in their 50s and 60s participating and, even if you are new to football, you can still contribute to the cause as goals are scored by your team on the scales as well as on the pitch. Need some extra support during the week?
You have access to an online gym and a mental health wellbeing platform as part of your monthly membership.
You’ll also find support not only from your teammates and clubmates at your MAN v FAT club, but also from that wider community, with a vibrant discussion taking place daily in the MAN v FAT Facebook group.
