Promotion Mountain Euro 2020 in Gspon

On Friday 21 July, a three-country tournament with the mountain village teams FC Gspon (Switzerland), Peel Saint German (England) und Morzine (France) will take place in Gspon. On Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 July, the traditional tournament of the FC Gspon will be held.
The promotion will be played under the slogan «SportMeetsCharity» to support the foundation Emera, the children's home Nurmaeisa and a mountain project in Gspon/Staldenried.
The promotion is organized with regard to Football’s fourth Mountain Village European Championship «Bergdorf-EM» that will be held in Gspon, Switzerland, at an altitude of 2,000 meters from 12th to 14th June 2020. FIFA, UEFA and the SFV regard it as a way to strengthen the role football plays in bringing people together. Moreover, it should draw attention to the inhabitants of the Alps that have to assert themselves in a challenging environment. The European football community describes the Gspon games as the perfect prelude to the UEFA EURO 2020™ that will take place in 13 countries to mark the UEFA anniversary year.

The mountain village of Gspon in Valais (Switzerland) held the first edition of the event in 2008 at an altitude of more than 2,000 meters, followed by Kleinarl (SalzburgerLand, Austria) which hosted the competition in 2012 at an altitude of 1,014 meters, and Morzine-Avoriaz (Haute-Savoie, France) which organized the tournament in 2016 at an altitude of 1,500 meters. To this day, dynamic mountain villages have collaborated to contribute vibrant chapters to the history of football.
UEFA is again supporting WWF's Earth Hour
UEFA will give its backing to social responsibility partner WWF – the global conservation organisation – by taking part in the Earth Hour initiative on Saturday evening to highlight the issues of climate change and protecting the environment.

European football's governing body is joining in the campaign being organised by the WWF network across the globe. The lights at UEFA's headquarters – the House of European Football in Nyon, on the banks of Lake Geneva in Switzerland – will be switched off for one hour from 20.30CET on Saturday.

Earth Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement uniting people to protect the planet, and is organised by WWF. The event is held worldwide towards the end of March annually, encouraging individuals, communities households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour as a symbol for their commitment to the planet.

Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia, in 2007. Since then, it has grown to engage more than 7,000 cities and towns globally, and the one-hour event continues to remain the key driver of the now larger movement. Earth Hour aims to inspire an interconnected global community to share the opportunities and challenges of creating a sustainable world.

Organisers have now launched Earth Hour Blue – a new digital crowd-funding and crowd-sourcing platform for the planet, which seeks to engage people around the world beyond the lights-out event. The crowd-funding section of the platform allows participants to financially support and deliver positive, tangible changes to the environment and communities all over the globe. Individuals can also use Earth Hour Blue's crowdsourcing platform, which will call for people to add their voice to some of the biggest environmental campaigns across the world.

"I am delighted that UEFA is taking part in Earth Hour as the campaign completes its shift from a one-hour event to a year-round movement, inspiring environmental action across the world," said UEFA Executive Committee member and chairman of the UEFA Fair Play and Social Responsibility Committee, Peter Gilliéron.

"Earth Hour is asking every one of us to go beyond the hour to protect the planet. Through the new digital platform Earth Hour Blue at www.earthhour.org, we can each make a difference to the environment and to communities all over the world. We encourage the football family to join this Earth Hour and to use their power."

"Earth Hour has always been more than just about lights off, it's about people from all walks of life coming together throughout the year to show what they can do to protect the planet," said Andy Ridley, CEO and co-founder of Earth Hour.

"What makes Earth Hour different is that it empowers people to take charge and to use their power to make a difference. The movement inspires a mixture of collective and individual action, so anyone can do their part."

Founded in 1961, WWF is one of the world's largest and most respected independent conservation bodies, with a global network active in more than 100 countries, and focused on protecting the planet's extraordinary wildlife species and habitats and reducing humanity's footprint.
