2013 award

In 2013, the Sepp Blatter Foundation decided on an exceptional basis to present its award – for the second year running – to a humanitarian-social institution in the Upper Valais in recognition of its extraordinary commitment and dedication to helping people with special needs. The 2013 award, which was once again worth CHF 20,000, was presented to the insieme oberwallis association. Founder Sepp Blatter and Foundation President Niklaus Furger presented the award and cheque to the President of insieme oberwallis, Edith Nanzer, at a small ceremony held in the auditorium of the curative school of Glis that was also attended by the entire Sepp Blatter Foundation Board of Management as well as by representatives of the Brig-Glis local authority and a number of students and insieme oberwallis residents.

2012 award

Each year, the Sepp Blatter Foundation, which was founded in 2006, presents an award to a project in the Upper Valais in recognition of its extraordinary humanitarian or sporting merits. This year, the 20,000 award was presented to Martinsheim, an elderly persons’ home in Visp. The award, which is worth CHF 20,000, was presented in the presence of Sepp Blatter, who, together with the Foundation Board, has been impressed by Martinsheim’s social commitment.

Congratulations for re-election

At its last meeting, held in the local council chambers in Visp on 31 October 2012, the Board of Management of the Sepp Blatter Foundation congratulated Niklaus Furgler on his re-election as the Mayor of Visp and presented him with a symbolic gift in the form of a specially embroidered foundation pennant.

The 2011 Sepp Blatter Foundation award was officially presented at the Sepp Blatter Football Tournament in Ulrichen, Valais on Sunday, 26 August 2012.

Sepp Blatter Foundation given a warm welcome by Fux campagna residential home

To achieve something big in a small place: that is the aim of the Fux campagna residential home in Visp in Upper Valais, where severely disabled people are encouraged to lead as rewarding and active a life as possible.

Today Switzerland, tomorrow the world

One thing needs to be underlined first and foremost: while the canton of Valais in Switzerland should remain the focus, the Sepp Blatter Foundation, which first saw the light of day in 2006, should start operating on a wider national and international basis in the future, whilst still remaining true to its original principles.

2010 Award

The foundation’s award for 2010 was officially presented at the Sepp Blatter Tournament in Ulrichen, Valais on Sunday, 28 August 2011.
