Born in Nawanshahr, Punjab, Sukhwinder started his football journey with Mahilpur Football Club before joining the Academy of JCT before being promoted to their senior team . He scored his first professional goal for the club on 2006 against Mahindra United in the 64th minute to help JCT to a huge 7–1 victory. He then scored his second goal for the club on 11 October 2007 against Mohammedan in the 45th minute to help JCT to a 2–0 win. He had a productive Durand Cup campaign in his debut season, where JCT reached the semi-finals, with Sukhwinder scoring thrice during the tournament.
‘Sukkhi’ as he is widely known is probably one of the few football professionals who has worked with the world’s top sports brand (Nike), the Federation (All India Football Federation) and set-up India’s leading football company (Libero Sports India). A former Santosh Trophy player, Sukkhi is also an MBA by qualification.
Sukhvinder Singh is looking forward to make Goa his footballing home and is excited about the project. He said, “While I followed and watched a lot of football in India it is for the first time ever that I am officially and emotionally connected with a football club. I want to build the off-pitch team that is critical to the success of the on-pitch team which results in development of the club as a whole.“The brand of ‘Goa’ is global and FC Goa shall try to leverage the identity, football culture and passion of the region to create a strong community-driven movement that shall capture the imagination of football enthusiasts not only in India but also at global level.”
