Mumbai City have announce that EA FC pro Siddh ‘Jenasid’ Chandarana has signed a two-year contract extension with the Islanders, until the end of the 2024-25 season.
Jenasid joined Mumbai City in 2021 and formed one half of the club’s first ever eSports roster. In the two years since, the 23-year-old from Mumbai has gone on to make great strides as one of India’s top EA Sports FIFA (now EA FC) athletes. In his debut season with the Islanders, Siddh finished as the runner up in South Asia in the FIFA Global Series 2022. A top spot in India and a third place finish in South Asia followed in the FGS 2023 season as Siddh and the Islanders sealed qualification in the FGS23 South Asia Play-Ins.
Siddh’s sublime form continued with the Indian National Team as the Mumbai boy created history with the eTigers after winning the Asia and Oceania Playoffs at the FIFAe Nations. Jenasid, along with his eTigers’ teammates, qualified for successive FIFAe Nations Cups in Denmark in 2022 and Saudi Arabia in 2023.
Having extended his stay with his hometown club, Siddh will represent the Islanders in the new-look EA FC Pro Ladder and EA FC Cup tournaments as well as in the eISL.
Siddh ‘Jenasid’ Chandarana said, “I’m extremely delighted to have signed on with Mumbai City. Ever since I signed for the club in 2021, I only wanted to stay and represent Mumbai City for as long as I possibly could. I’m grateful to everyone at Mumbai City and City Football Group for the faith and trust in me and I look forward to repaying it back with my performances. Mumbai is my home and I can’t wait to get going!”
Kandarp Chandra, CEO – Mumbai City FC, said, “Nearly two years ago, we started our eSports journey at Mumbai City and Siddh has been an important part of that journey. Since joining us in our debut season in eSports, Siddh has shown tremendous promise and why he is one of the best in India and beyond. Moreover, he’s a proper Mumbai boy and he knows what it means to be successful for Mumbai City. We’re happy to have Siddh continue on this journey with us and we look forward to a new eSports season.”
