Talk about home field advantage 🏔
In a tiny village 6,200 feet high in the Swiss Alps, with one bar, one hotel, one church and a few dozen stone roofed chalets, soccer reigns supreme. With Gspon’s 500-odd residents, this alpine community is centered not around sky slopes or hiking trails, but a pitch — in fact, the highest one in Europe. At this altitude, the visiting team is often gasping for breath while the locals enjoy an unusual home advantage as the game wears on.
