Registration is now open for a football league which aims to help men lose weight.

Man V Fat Football combines the beautiful game with dietary and lifestyle advice over a 14-week period in Norwich. The first season, which recently finished, saw a group of 60 men lose a combined 370kg. Organisers say one man lost 32.5kg in 14 weeks.

Registration for the second season opens on Friday, June 1 at 7pm to 9pm at Carrow Park.

The six-a-side matches take place at Open Academy on Friday nights from 7pm to 9pm, starting June 9.

Players are weighed before taking part in the 30-minute games. They can earn extra goal bonuses for their team depending on the number of pounds lost. The final result of each match consists of the score on the pitch and the score from the scales.
