On Sunday, 31 August, FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter will take part in the 11th edition of the football tournament that bears his name in Ulrichen (Valais), his home canton in Switzerland.

Various names from the world of international sport will be there. He will also present the 2007 Sepp Blatter Football and Humanity Foundation Award to Visp's football school for children between the ages of 5 and 8.

Last year, the foundation's award for 2006 was given to BSOW, an association for sport for the disabled in the Upper Valais.
