Heinz Barmettler Veloz (born 21 July 1987)[1] is a Dominican footballer who plays for Real Valladolid as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Born in Zurich, Switzerland to a Swiss father and a Dominican mother,[2] he was part of the 2006–07 Swiss Championship winning team FC Zürich.[3]

On 12 July 2012 he joined Inter Baku on a two-year contract.[4] On 7 January 2013, Barmettler joined FC Vaduz on a 6 month contract, with the option of another 2 years, on a free transfer from Inter Baku.[5]

On August 2, 2013 following a successful trial period in the summer with Real Valladolid, the club have opted to sign Heinz on a two-year contract, making him the first Dominican player to play in La Liga.[6]

International career[edit]

On 14 November 2009, Barmettler had made his international debut for Switzerland in the 0:1 home loss to Norway, playing the full 90 minutes. However, as the match was friendly and in addition he was never called after that date, Barmettler chose to change his FIFA nationality into Dominican Republic in 2012.[7]

His first match with the Dominican national team was in the 2012 Caribbean Championship.[8] He debuted on September 24 of that year in a 2-2 draw against Aruba.[9] He is the captain of the Dominican national team.
