Early career[edit]

Sebastian Mielitz was born in Zehdenick, and began his football career at Eintracht Oranienburg, moving later to MSV Neuruppin and Energie Cottbus.[1] In 2005, he joined the youth team of SV Werder Bremen. On 10 November 2007, he debuted for the second team of Werder Bremen in the second half of a match, replacing the injured first-choice goalkeeper Nico Pellatz. In August 2008, Mielitz extended his contract until 2010. His professional debut in the 3. Liga was on 16 August 2008 against Jahn Regensburg.

Werder Bremen[edit]

On 3 December 2009, Mielitz made his first appearance with Werder's first team in a Europe League home match against Nacional, filling in for the injured Tim Wiese. Three days later, on 6 December 2009, he debuted in the Bundesliga in a 0–0 away draw against 1. FC Köln making a good performance with his first clean sheet.[2] In March 2010, he signed a contract extension, keeping him until 2012.[3]

Mielitz remained a third-choice goalkeeper behind Wiese and Christian Vander ahead of the 2010–11 season. On 20 October 2010, he made his first appearance in the UEFA Champions League group stage against Twente, coming on for the injured Wiese. Three days later, on matchday 9, he made several saves contributing to 4–1 away win against Borussia Mönchengladbach, the club's first of the season.[4][5] He featured in another Champions League match against Twente on 2 November 2010 which Werder Bremen 2–0 lost. At the end of the season, Mielitz signed another contract extension, keeping him until 2013.[6] Rumors began to leak that Wiese was on the verge of leaving the club with Mielitz as Wiese's successor.[7]

Ahead of the new 2011–12 season, Mielitz was placed as second-choice goalkeeper, taking Vander's place and demoting him to third-choice. He played his first match of the season after Wiese was sent off in the early minutes of a 1–1 draw against 1. FC Nürnberg on 17 September 2011. With Wiese receiving a three match ban, Mielitz filled in showing very good performances until Wiese returned from suspension. Throughout the season, Wiese managed to beat off Mielitz, leaving him on the substitute bench, but Mielitz occasionally got playing time.

Having signed another contract extension in May 2012 which would keep him until 2014 and with Wiese leaving Werder Bremen to join Hoffenheim, Mielitz was given the shirt number 1 for the new season.[8] In the LIGA total! Cup 2012, Mielitz was the hero when he made two saves in the penalties shoot-out (one from Bastian Schweinsteiger) in a 4–2 win over Bayern Munich to progress through the final which they beat Borussia Dortmund in a penalty shoot-out again the following day. After the match against Bayern Munich, Mielitz said YouTube helped him save a penalty from Schweinsteiger.[9]

SønderjyskE[edit]

With his Greuther Fürth contract running out at the end of the 2016–17 season, Mielitz joined Danish Superliga club SønderjyskE for the new season on a two-year contract with the option of a third in May 2017.[10]

International career[edit]

He was part of the team that participated at the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup.[11]
