Tourist added value thanks to the lighthouse function
The Bergdorf European Championship is able to attract plenty of spectators every time it is held. For example, 4,000 people took part in the 2008 tournament in Gspon; in 2012, 10,000 were already thrilled with the excitement in Kleinarl. Up to 1,000 sports enthusiasts each take part in the doctorates.
The tournament together with the promotions has so far generated more than 15,000 overnight stays and brought great attention to the Alpine region, which is worth protecting, and its residents. The Bergdorf European Championship focuses the tourist staging of football in the mountain villages on the highest football field in Europe, the Ottmar Hitzfeld GsponArena at approx. 2,000 m above sea level. M. More and more tourists from various countries (including Ireland, United States, England, Brazil, Costa Rica) visit the picturesque, car-free Gspon with the Stalden – Staldenried – Gspon cable car. With the Bergdorf European Championship, a mountain village has created a contemplative project for Switzerland, the Valais and the region, which is reported on across Europe.
