Riccardo Meili (born 6 March 1982)[1] is a footballer from Switzerland who last plays as goalkeeper for FC Vaduz in the Swiss Challenge League.


Meili started his career at SC Aadorf in 1999. He made 22 appearances for the club during the 2 seasons he was there. He then signed for FC Frauenfeld in 2001 and played 18 times for the club before leaving for FC Basel during the January transfer window. He was at Basel from 2001 to 2003 as third-choice goalkeeper. His hunger for first-team football then led him across the city to FC Concordia Basel where he played 12 games in 2 years. After Concordia he had a short spell at FC Wil 1900, playing 2 games. Meili went back to FC Basel in 2005 where he once again saw no first-team action which led to him leaving for FC Concordia Basel for a second time. In 2008, he joined Panionios F.C., an Athens-based club in Greece and signed on 20 June 2009 a contract with FC Vaduz and left the club on 30 June 2009.[2]


He is of Spanish heretige.
