Baichung Bhutia (Hindi: बाईचुंग भुटिया) (born 15 December 1976 in Tinkitam, Sikkim, India) is an Indian footballer. He is considered to be the torchbearer of Indian football in the international arena.[2] He is currently the captain of the Indian team[3] and plays for East Bengal. He is often nicknamed the Sikkimese Sniper because of his shooting skills.[4][5]

During his career Bhutia has had four spells at I-League football team East Bengal Club, the club where he started his career. When he signed for English club Bury F.C. in 1999 he became the first Indian footballer to play professional football in Europe. In addition to this he had a short loan spell at the Malaysian football club Perak FA. As well as this he has played for JCT Mills, where he won the league once, and Mohun Bagan, where he failed to win the league once in two spells, in his native India. He is also India's most capped player and is currently their captain. His international footballing honours include winning the Nehru Cup, LG Cup, South Asian Football Federation (SAFF) Championship (3 times) and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Challenge Cup.

Off the field, Bhutia is known for winning the reality television programme Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, which caused much controversy with his then-club Mohun Bagan, and for refusing to carry the Olympic torch in support of the Tibetan independence movement. He also has a football stadium named after him in honour of his contribution to Indian football, in addition to this Bhutia has won many awards such as the Arjuna Award and the Padma Shri.
