Press Release

09/07/2016

Mumbai City FC today announced the signing of Amrinder Singh for ISL 2016. A young and talented player, Singh won the hearts of many during the last season of the Indian Super League with Atletico de Kolkata, and he followed that up by winning the Best goalkeeper of the I-League with Bengaluru FC.

Amrinder Singh studied at the Sports Wing Academy, an institution run by the Punjab government. Starting off as a striker, Singh turned to goalkeeping when his coach steered him in that direction. With his impressive built and natural instincts, the move proved to be a massive turning point in his career.

Excelling in both the under-17 and under-19 teams, he won the Dr. BC Roy Trophy for Punjab. He joined the Pune FC under -19 team in 2011, and later went on to join their first team. He kicked off his international career at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games with the India under-23 team.

Amrinder captained the Indian team at the AFC under-23 championship qualifiers in Bangladesh in 2016. He played an important role with Atletico de Kolkata in the last season of the ISL and contributed to Bengaluru FC's 2015-16 title winning season, thus becoming a permanent fixture in the senior national team squad.

Commenting on the selection, Indranil Das Blah, CEO, Mumbai City FC said, “Amrinder is one of the finest goalkeepers in the country. He brings a wealth of experience at a young age and a hunger that that is extremely good for a team. All of us are really excited to welcome him to the Mumbai City FC family."

On being signed by Mumbai City FC, Amrinder Singh said "Mumbai City FC is a great club with some really great players and staff. The fans showed how great they are when we played Puerto Rico here and I can’t wait to play for them."
