^1South Africa qualified but gave up their automatic berth on the premise that there weren't enough black players in the team. Argentina took their place as the 7th ranked team at the Olympic Qualification Tournament.[1]
^2Australia qualified both as host and continental champion, therefore that quota was added to the ones awarded by the 2000 Men's Field Hockey Olympic Qualifier to a total of 6.
