World Club Champion Football: Serie A 2001-2002 is the first entry in Sega's World Club Champion Football arcade series, and was released worldwide in 2002. It is based off the Serie A, the top football league in Italy.
World Club Champion Football is a partnership with the Panini Group. Each game is a giant football simulator, in which every player's actions are dictated by the statistics held on special cards (available separately). Players manage teams and compete in friendlies, leagues and tournaments, though does not control players directly. Users can, of course, dictate which players should be used, and through mutiple updates over a thousand different cards are in existence.
The player puts the trading cards on the flat surface reader that can be manipulated. Once you place your eleven players and have your formation, you then via the buttons either give commands to the team or shoot the ball and also catch the ball with the goalie. Your team can have stats in either Offense, Defense, Passing, Possession, Speed, and Power, which all improve along the game,
The game was expanded to include European teams in 2005, and international teams in 2007. Sega have released an updated version of the game every year since the series' inception in 2002, though several entries have remained exclusive to Japan. In order to work effectively, an arcade operator would need to set up four or eight World Club Champion Football cabinets and link them together as part of a network. Due to the amount of space required it is typically more suited to bigger arcades, and is therefore only common in Japanese arcades.
