Hasler started his career at FC Zürich in 1969 and left two years later to join FC Basel, where he won two league titles consecutively in 1972 and 1973, and the Swiss Cup in 1975. He then moved to Neuchâtel Xamax in 1976 where he played for three years before returning to St. Jakob Stadium, where he helped Basel win another title in 1980.
