The 2000-01 season was Fulham's 103rd season in professional football, competing in the Football League Division 1. This season for Fulham was of note, as they gained promotion to the Premier League and ran away with the Division 1 title with 101 points, at the time a record - with a 10 point margin over runners-up Blackburn Rovers. The manager was former AS Monaco manager Jean Tigana's first season at Craven Cottage after Paul Bracewell's sacking toward the end of the 1999-2000 season.
