Marco Wölfli (born 22 August 1982) is a Swiss football goalkeeper and captain of BSC Young Boys in the Swiss Super League. He is contracted to the club until June 2012.

Wölfli made his league debut for Young Boys during their 1999 2000 Nationalliga B campaign. Two years later, limited opportunities with the first team saw him move to FC Thun, where he won promotion to the Nationalliga A and established himself as a good prospect. He returned to Young Boys in the summer of 2003, quickly cementing himself as the Bern club's first choice goalkeeper.

After the retirement of veteran striker Thomas Häberli, Wölfli was named club captain by manager Vladimir Petkovic prior to the 2009 10 season. He is currently the longest tenured player at the club. In November 2010 he extended his contract to last until 30 June 2015.

He earned his first international cap for Switzerland in the friendly match against Finland on 19 November 2008. Diego Benaglio is currently the first choice goalkeeper, with Wölfli and FC Zürich keeper Johnny Leoni vying for the backup position.
