Marco Wölfli (born 22 August 1982) is a Swiss professional football goalkeeper who plays for Young Boys in the Swiss Super League.

Club career

Wölfli made his league debut for Young Boys during their 1999-2000 Nationalliga B campaign. Two years later, limited opportunities with the first team saw him move to FC Thun, where he won promotion to the Nationalliga A and established himself as a good prospect. He returned to Young Boys in the summer of 2003, quickly cementing himself as the Bern club's first choice goalkeeper.

After the retirement of veteran striker Thomas Häberli, Wölfli was named club captain by manager Vladimir Petkovic prior to the 2009-10 season.[1] He is currently the longest tenured player at the club. In November 2010 he extended his contract to last until 30 June 2015.[2]

He was part of the Young Boys squad that won the Swiss Super League for the first time in 32 years in 2017-18 season.[3]

International career

He earned his first international cap for Switzerland in the friendly match against Finland on 19 November 2008. After his injury on 9 December Wölfli lost his number one status at Young Boys and has since not played for Switzerland anymore.
