Since the first time in 1975 up to and including 1999 the now hypomeeting Götzis was organized by the athletics community Montfort. On the initiative of OC President Werner Ströhle and Meeting Director Konrad Lerch, the "Association for the Promotion of Athletics (VFL)" was founded in 2000. Since then the VFL acts as organizer.
The purpose of the VFL is primarily to ensure the organization of the Hypomeeting Götzis, which is now part of the World Athletics Combined Events Tour "Gold Level", and the support of projects that serve to promote athletics - especially the combined events.
The annual event as well as the side events for kids and teens is only made possible by the cooperation of exclusively voluntary staff: from the organizing committee to the referees, the setting up of the side event or the merchandising - more than 400 volunteers are involved.
