Dominik Ritter (born 23 June 1989) is a Swiss footballer who is currently a free agent.


Ritter started in the Basel youth system. He made his way through the ranks at Basel and played in their U-21 team. In 2008, he was loaned to FC Concordia Basel for a year.[1] In 2009, Ritter was brought up the FC Basel first team squad. He got his first chance to start in the game against FC Santa Coloma in the Europa League.[2]

Because he was unable to get a place in the Basel first team, he played six games in the U-21 team, the club loaned him to FC Winterthur for the second half of the 2009-10 season. This loan was prolonged for the 2010-11 season and on 15 June 2011 the transfer became definite.

Newcastle Jets[edit]

On 2 July 2012, it was announced he was signed by A-League club Newcastle Jets FC on a one-year deal.[3]

Ritter, along with teammates Marko Jesic and Bernardo Ribeiro were released by the Newcastle Jets at the end of the 2012-13 A-League season.[4]
