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.
