Souvik Chakraborty (born 12 July 1991 in Kolkata, West Bengal) is an Indian footballer who plays as a midfielder for Mohun Bagan A.C. in the I-League.


Early Career & Mohun Bagan[edit]

Chakraborty started playing football at the age of eight at the Yubajagaran football coaching centre.[1] He then joined the Mohun Bagan Academy when he was 15 years old where he recalls his most memorable moment there, the Manchester United Premier Cup in Manchester, England.[1] Chakraborty was then selected to join the first-team for the 2009–10 Indian Federation Cup and the Calcutta Football League.[1] His call-up to the senior team was made possible due to the rule that each club in the Calcutta Football League must have 2 under-19 players in the squad.[1] Chakraborty had to wait till 2 November 2011 before making his professional debut for the club against Dempo S.C. at the Fatorda Stadium in which Mohun Bagan lost 5–0, coming on as a 26th minute substitute for Anwar Ali.[2]

Air India[edit]

In the summer of 2012 Chakraborty signed for Air India FC of the I-League and scored his first professional goal of his career for the club on 28 August 2012 against Pailan Arrows during the 2012 Durand Cup.[3] He made his I-League debut for Air India on 7 October 2012 against Prayag United S.C. in which Air India lost 5–1.[4] He scored his second goal for Air India in the I-League against Shillong Lajong F.C. on 16 December 2012 to give Air India the lead 1–0 before the match ended 1–1 after Lajong found an equalizer.[5]


Souvik made his debut on 6 October 2013 against Bengaluru FC at the Salt Lake Stadium in which he played till 61minutes and was replaced by Snehasish Chakraborty as United lost the match 1-0.[6]
