Peaks up to 3000m form the impressive backdrop of the Montafon Alpine Trophy, which takes place every year during Corpus Christi in Schruns and Tschagguns. With this tournament, the organisers really cement Austria's outstanding reputation as a host country, whether you're referring to skiing or football during the Montafon Alpine Trophy: every guest is more than welcome. It's no surprise that top clubs like Werder Bremen and Lazio Roma regularly set up their training camps in Schruns. The organisers offer an attractive programme in and around the beautifully kept sports parks, meticulously planned to include a vast array of sporting and celebratory activities, such as a spectacular opening ceremony and a laid-back party night.
Participants in the Montafon Alpine Trophy literally play at a high level. The Montafon valley (35 km long, 16,500 inhabitants) starts in the Silvretta Alps on the border with Switzerland – with peaks of 3000 metres and above – and goes all the way to Bludenz in Inntal. Schruns and Tschagguns are in the centre of the Montafon valley.
Montafon is a popular destination for holiday-makers in both summer and winter. The communities of Schruns and Tschagguns are surrounded by spectacular Alpine giants, such as the Rätikon, Silvretta and the Verwall. The highest peak is Piz Buin at 3,312 metres. There are no fewer than 62 lifts to take adventurers to incredible heights.
In this enormous sports and leisure park, you can do almost anything, such as mountain biking and rollerskating. There is also a spectacular dry toboggan track and a climbing forest in Aktivpark Montafon. That's what you call real adventure! You'll also find the Montafon Alpine Pool in this park, where participants can take a dip and whizz down the awesome water slide.
The tournament is organised by FC Schruns (1947, 11 teams), SCM Vandans (1951, 4 teams), SC St. Gallenkirch (1982, 8 teams) and SV Gaschurn-Partenen (10 teams). For this tournament, the clubs will work intensively with the community of Schruns-Tschagguns and the local tourist office.
The Montafon Alpine Trophy is played at 4 locations, all within a 15 kilometre radius of one another. All the sports parks have a canteen and changing rooms.
