Gspon is located in the canton of Valais and is part of the municipality of Staldenried. The village is part of the Euro project of Mountain Villages since it was the organizer of the first event in 2008. Gspon is organized into 30 hamlets ranging from 739m to 1893m in altitude. In summer as in winter, mountain lovers can partake in many activities, available across the vast plains of Staldenried-Gspon.
Gspon FC was founded in 1974 and today has 100 members. Members have the privilege of playing on the "Ottmar Hitzfeld GsponArena" football pitch, the highest pitch in Europe. It culminates at 2008 meters altitude. The Swiss team's hopes are just as high for the Mountain Euro 2016!
