Indian Super League side, Mumbai City FC, on Wednesday, confirmed that their CEO, Indranil Das Blah has left the club ‘to pursue a new opportunity’. Blah has been with the Islanders since their first season in 2014.

Blah’s departure has come only a month after Mumbai City FC parted ways with manager Jorge Costa, ending the Portuguese’s two-year tenure at the club. Speaking about his tenure, Blah thanked everyone at the club, including the fans.

“It’s been an incredible journey with Mumbai City. The Club will always be very special to me,” he said.

“I would like to thank Ranbir and Mr Parekh for being such wonderful owners, the players and club staff, who have become family now. Most importantly, I would like to thank our fans, who have stood by the club and me, through thick and thin. I wish the club all the very best as it enters a new chapter under the CFG ownership and have absolutely no doubt that the club is in very good hands,” he added.

Bimal Parekh, Mumbai City FC’s co-owner, said: “Indranil has been with Mumbai City since the beginning and has overseen all of the Club’s formative years, including two memorable play-off runs. Everyone at the club would like to wish Indranil every success for the future in his new role and thank him for all his considerable efforts. He will always remain part of the fabric of the club and we hope to welcome him back to Mumbai City games as a fan.”

The Islanders, who announced their merger with the English Premier League champions Manchester City in November 2019, said they will announce its new chief executive officer soon.
