"The future of mental and physical wellbeing". what does this mean?

For too long now, too many have struggled at the hands of mental illness.

Unfortunately, whilst it’s something that can cause so many problems, there’s not enough being done on educating those suffering on how to improve on how they feel.

Often, physical and mental wellbeing is intertwined and effecting one without the other is almost impossible. This brought us to the conclusion that if both can be negatively linked, maybe we can turn that into a positive?

We want to bring CBT to strength training, where not only do you get in shape, get stronger and feel better in your own skin, but you’re also learning about how to feel better mentally and understand why you have the thought processes you do.

This programme is a future project that will be monitored by fully qualified professionals, so watch this space!

How are items delivered

Our items are sent via DPD using next day delivery for all UK based sales. For full details please see our Delivery and Shipping Policy

What is a Certificate of Authenticity (COA)

All memorabilia items purchased from Fighting Chance come with a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) to prove your signed item is genuine.

How do I know that this COA is authentic?

All COA’s will come with a security tag attached, which will also be duplicated on the product.

The code on the security tag will correlate to our online database of sold memorabilia. You will be able to check the item’s authenticity through here. If the code does not match the product received, then this item was not sold or provided by us.

Private Signings

What is a private signing?

A private signing is an event where we meet a current or ex-professional of a given sport. We sit in a private location with the individual where they will sign all the items provided to them. We give the opportunity for subscribed members to Fighting Chance to send items in to be signed by the individual of their choice.

How will I know what individual is completing a private signing?

All subscribers are automatically enrolled to our mailing system, where they will be promptly informed of the upcoming Fighting Chance Private Signings

What do you mean by authentic?

All items sent to us must have been purchased through an approved club shop. For instance, Liverpool Football Club, Sports Direct, JD Sports etc. These all sell items that are appropriate to be signed. Any counterfeit items sent to us will be returned without a signature being on the item. This will be sent back to you at your cost; however, the signing fee will be refunded.

How do I label my item(s)?

We recommend a non-adhesive tape with your name and area you want signed on the item(s). If you’re sending a photo, please do NOT stick tape on the front of the photo as you risk damaging it. For photos, you can simply include a slip in the parcel and we will label appropriately.

What do I need to do with prepaid postage?

When paying for a SAE, please make sure you have your name and full address on the envelope. Next, you need to ensure the envelope is paid for with the correct stamps to reflect special delivery, signed for, first class or second class.

IMPORTANT Please ensure that the SAE has stamps for postage back to you and not a printed label with the total label. If you do not do this, the printed label will only be valid for that day.

Where do I send my item(s)?

The address for where you need to send your items for signing will be provided in the subscribed members section, under the heading of the individual completing the signing.

Do all items come with a COA (Certificate of Authenticity)?

We can provide a COA at an additional cost of £2.

How many items can I send?

Details of how many items allowed for sending will be provided on the email sent to everyone.

How do I become a subscribed member?

Details of how to become a Fighting Chance Subscribed Member are available on our membership page.

Can I send in name and numbered shirts?

Yes. However, the shirt must be proven as authentic before it is deemed as acceptable for signing.

It’s my first signing, what do I need to do?

A few things need to be done here. Firstly, you need to read the terms and conditions of the signing to make sure the item you’re about to send complies with them. Once you have done this, it’s important you appropriately label your shirt. This allows us to know who the shirt belongs to and where you want it to be signed. You will then be required to post this to us by the deadline detailed, providing a SAE (self-addressed envelope). Alternatively, you can click the option for return postage when purchasing a slot for a private signing. This will allow an additional fee to be added to your total, which will cover the cost of us paying for a returns label and posting the item back to you.

What happens if my item(s) gets damaged in transit?

If the parcel has been damaged in transit to us, we will inform you as soon as realistically possible. We would be unable to accept liability for the item(s) as it was damaged by courier on route to us, so you would need to raise your concerns with the courier involved.

If the parcel was damaged on route to you, the role will be reversed and the claim will be made by us, with the suitable compensation provided as arranged between yourself and us.

When am I likely to receive my items back?

We ask for you to leave 2 weeks before chasing for your items to be sent back. We often receive upwards of 250 items for a signing, of which are usually send by 100+ individuals. We are still a small team so it takes time to go through these items to make sure mistakes aren’t made.

Do I get photo proof of the signing?

We do our best to provide photo proof of signings, but they cannot be guaranteed so please do not send your item in if this is absolutely essential.

How do I pay for item(s)?

Details on method of payment will be provided in the subscribed members section, under the heading of the individual completing the signing.

However, it might be important to note that Carl and Paul (who are the hosts of the podcast) are both medically trained to varying degrees. Carl is an EMT and Paul is a Paramedic.

What do you talk about on the fighting Chance Podcast?

We talk about various aspects of mental health on the Fighting Chance Podcast. Not only the distresses that comes with it, but the wellness side too.

Who is involved?

Carl Spiller, our managing director, co-hosts the Fighting Chance Podcast with Paul Baccino. Both know each other well and worked together during their time in the military.
