2008 Award: Forum Migration Oberwallis

How does football differ from everyday life? In the world of football, racism and xenophobia appear not to be an issue – migration and integration are nothing out of the ordinary, they are practised each and every day and are also seen as a true enrichment.

The 2008 Sepp Blatter Foundation award is a particularly great honour for us. It shows us that the Sepp Blatter Football and Humanity Foundation stands behind our association and that we are on the right track with our work. This means a lot to us.

Mr Blatter gave our football team Zämu Gwinnu a very warm reception in Gluringen. We could feel that the individual is the most important thing to him, regardless of their nationality or origin. Many thanks for this generous moral and financial support!
