Club career[edit]

Despite being just 16 years old, he was given his league debut in Grasshopper's first match of the 2007–08 season, a 2–0 victory over FC St. Gallen, playing 90 minutes at right back.[1] He was also a key member of the Switzerland U-17 team during the qualifying round of the 2007 UEFA U-17 Championship, playing in all three matches during that round.[2][3][4]


In November 2009, he signed a pre-contract with Parma[5] and joined the Italian club after the end of season. He played for Parma's primavera in the 2011 edition of the Torneo di Viareggio, but made just two league starts and a substitute appearance for the first-team in his debut season. He made 4 appearances the following year.


In June 2012, Padova confirmed that Rolf Feltscher was signed on a loan deal from Parma with an option to buy for the year 2012-13[6]


He joined MSV Duisburg for the 2014–15 season.[7]


On 11 July 2016, Feltscher signed a two-year deal with Getafe CF in Segunda División.[8] After being rarely used, he was loaned to fellow league team Real Zaragoza the following 31 January.[9]
