Irungbam Khelemba Singh (born 1985) is an Indian football player. He currently plays for Mumbai F.C. as a defender in the I-League.


Early career[edit]

Khelemba Singh hails from Imphal. He had started playing football since his schooldays. His talent didn't go unnoticed and he soon played in the Manipur League for SSC Sekta & Sagaoband United. In 2004, he joined Guwahati's Green Valley F.C. and then played in the I-League 2nd division for Assam State Electricity Board (ASEB), the same year. After joining Churchill Brothers in 2005, Khelemba played for four other I-League clubs Viva Kerala, East Bengal, Air India & Salgaocar before joining McDowell Mohun Bagan.

Viva Kerala[edit]

In the I-League match at Calicut against Air India, when Sulley Mussah had fouled Badmus Babatunde, Viva Kerala captain Khelemba Singh scored from a 40-yard long stunning free kick, a thriller which finally ended in a 3-2 win for the home team.[1]


On 24 November 2013 it was announced that Khelemba has signed for Mumbai on loan from IMG Realiance with three other players Mohammed Rafi, N.P. Pradeep and Peter Costa.[2] He made his debut on 2 December 2013 against East Bengal F.C. at the Balewadi Sports Complex in which he played the whole match as Mumbai won the match 3-2.[3]
