Full name Kshetrimayum Malemganba Meitei, born in Yairipok, Manipur started his professional career with Manipuri outfit NEROCA FC.

While with NEROCA Meetei played in the Manipur State League which was the top tier league for football in Manipur. He then signed for the North Imphal Sporting Association in 2009 who were the reigning Manipur league winners and participants in the I-League 2nd Division. In 2010 Meetei was signed by newly promoted HAL SC for the new I-League season. Two seasons later, after the club were relegated, Meetei signed for former I-League champions, Salgaocar, for the 2012–13 season. After spending one season at Salgaocar, he played for two years from 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 season for the Bangaluru outfit.

After playing for two years at Bangaluru FC, Meetei signed for Mumbai. He recently played for NEROCA FC of Manipur (2016-2017) which became the first club from Manipur to be crowned winner of 2nd Division I-League.
