Kevin Fickentscher (born 6 July 1988) is a Swiss professional footballer who currently plays for FC Sion as a goalkeeper.


Fickentscher was born in Nyon, and initially began his footballing career with local side FC Rolle before a move to the academy of FC Lausanne-Sport in 2000. After a stay of four years, he was picked by German club SV Werder Bremen, where he went on to feature for the under-19 team but did not really break into the reserves, making two appearances for them.

This prompted a move back to Switzerland for him as he joined then-Swiss Challenge League team FC La Chaux-de-Fonds for the 2008–09 season.

The following year Fickentscher moved up to Swiss Super League with FC Sion. After joining the club, he played sparsely for the first team, featuring far more for the reserves. In the summer of 2013 he decided to return to FC Lausanne-Sport in order to get more playing time, signing on a two-year loan, allowing him to return to Sion in 2015 when his main competitor in goal, Andris Vaņins, would be out of contract at the club.[1][2]
