During the 2000–01 English football season, Sunderland A.F.C. competed in the FA Premier League.

Season summary[edit]

Sunderland enjoyed another strong season, and briefly occupied second place in February, but the Black Cats were unable to keep up their excellent form, and they had to settle for seventh place – just as they did last season, and not quite enough for UEFA Cup qualification.[1]

Notes:
  1. ^ Since Liverpool won the League Cup and qualified for the Champions League, their UEFA Cup place went to fifth-placed Ipswich Town. Since both FA Cup finalists, Liverpool and Arsenal, qualified for the Champions League, the berth in the UEFA Cup went to sixth-placed Chelsea. Both Ipswich and Chelsea were the highest-ranked team not already qualified for a European competition.
