I wonder if Mickey's tail ever gets caught in between the bleachers when he sits.

Unused Graphics

A Konami Computer Entertaiment Kobe logo can be found starting from offset 0xEF14E in the Japanese data, 0xEF096 in the American data and 0xF3FB2 in the European data. It is also loaded in the Konami logo VRAM data, but never actually displayed. Its palette data is the same as the Konami logo.

Regional Differences

The European version of the game was released as Disney Sports: Football, as the sport is more commonly known in that region. A different game by that title was released in the US (and not Europe), based on American Football. Japan saw both games, as Soccer and American Football, averting the confusion entirely. Additionally, the "Press Start Button" text in the Japanese release was shortened in the localizations, and a "Licensed by Nintendo" text was added.
