Description

FIFA 2001 comes back to the series' fast-paced roots. The gameplay is balanced differently to previous versions, and includes online play as an option.

It includes 17 leagues from around the world in addition to over 50 national teams. Exhibition, Tournament, League, Cup, Season, and Training modes are available to play, ranging from simple round-robin competition to simple knock-outs to combinations of the two, and the player rosters are as up-to-date as possible.

Trivia

EA Cover Curse

Ben Olsen (featured on the cover of the US PS2 version) suffered the curse by breaking his ankle and missing the entire following season.

Missing Sponsors

While it was the first in the series to include real and unique kits, some teams did not carry shirt sponsors. The reason? They were sponsored by rival companies such as Eidos (Manchester City) or Infogrames (Olympique Lyon).
