The programme currently targets males over 40, who feel over-weight and/or inactive. The weekly sessions see fans weigh-in, attend a presentation on a health or fitness related topic and take parting a fitness session. Funding has recently been secured from the Football League Discretionary Fund and partners GP London and local Croydon business The Premier Group that will see the Foundation further develop its successful Eagles Fitter Fans club by opening up the age range to run clubs for men aged 30 to 39 for the next 2 years.
“I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you and the club for all the hard work and effort that went into the fitter fans programme. Its not often normal football fans are made to feel part of the club they support it’s made us feel welcome and wanted and not just a paying commodity. Although I did not lose as much weight as I would have liked (I have gone up 2 notches on my belt though!!) its made me more conscious about how I live my life now, And the fact the club are letting us on the pitch against Scunthorpe and then a chance for fill every football fans dream and play on the pitch of the team they have supported all there life makes a perfect end. I sincerely hope the course is as successful with the next groups and that Crystal Palace as a club continue with initiatives and maybe different programmes for more fans like myself and I’m sure it will have a very positive effect at how Palace fans see the club.”
