Sign up to football for weight management

The football programme is currently unavailable. We are working hard to restart these sessions as soon as possible in line with government guidelines. Keep checking this page for further updates.

Get fit for free playing the beautiful game

Lose weight playing football, with football sessions delivered by Wigan Athletic Community Trust, in indoor or outdoor venues.

It's like 5-aside, but as well as scoring goals on the pitch, you'll be digging deep to hit your weight loss and fitness goals too. You'll have fun getting fit with a mix of skills, drills, small sided games and healthy eating advice.

Open to all abilities. Teams and individual sign ups are welcome.

Who can join?

FREE for anyone based in Wigan borough, aged over 18 years with a BMI of 25+ - calculate your BMI (external link).

For any men interested, you can also check out our MAN V FAT football league (external link) or the MAN V FAT challenge (external link).

  • LWFG is delivered by Wigan Council, Liverpool FT NHS and a range of partners on behalf of Wigan Council for the specific purpose of providing you with weight management support. To access the service we need to send any relevant details that you have supplied us on this form to the provider and on occasion may need to share them with your GP, Wigan Council and other LWFG providers to ensure constant service improvement.
