Born in Samen (Switzerland), the Swiss international began her professional career at the age of 15, in 2012, with SC Kriens. A year later, she signed for BSC Young Boys, where she played for four seasons. In 2017, the 27-year-old defender left Switzerland to join Atletico Madrid, a club with whom she won two domestic championships (2018, 2019).
Viola Calligaris then signed for Valencia for a season, before spending three seasons at Levante.
With the Swiss national team, the new Parisian played with the U17 and U19 sides before being called up to the senior team in September 2016 for an Olympic qualifier against Norway. She now has 43 caps and 5 goals. This summer, Viola will travel to Australia and New Zealand to represent Switzerland at the 2023 FIFA World Cup.
The Club is delighted to welcome Viola to its squad and wishes her all the best in the Rouge et Bleu jersey.
