A much-travelled centre-forward, the talented Vairelles started his professional career with hometown club AS Nancy before moving to RC Lens in summer 1995. After four seasons with considerable success (one league and one cup title) he joined Olympique Lyonnais who sent him out on loan three times and finally sold him to Stade Rennais. From then he changed clubs every season. Before the 2008 Major League Soccer season he had a trial with Toronto FC but did not fit into their plans and was not signed. In 2009, he joined FC Gueugnon after a stint at F91 Dudelange. He also became the club's main investor.
Vairelles represented France at the 1996 Summer Olympics.
He made his senior debut for France in an August 1998 friendly match against Austria and went on to earn 8 caps, scoring one goal. He played his final international game in April 2000 against Slovenia.
