The 2001 Men's Hockey World Cup Qualifier was the 10th edition of the Hockey World Cup qualification tournament. It was held between 17–29 July 2001 in Edinburgh, Scotland. The seven highest placed teams would earn a berth to play in the 2002 Men's Hockey World Cup, to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Argentina won the tournament after defeating Spain 5–4 in the final. Alongside Poland, Belgium, India, Japan and New Zealand, these seven teams qualified for the World Cup.

Except for Oceania, all other four confederations received quotas for teams to participate allocated by the International Hockey Federation based upon the FIH World Rankings. Those teams participated at their respective continental championships but could not qualify through it, and they received the chance to qualify through this tournament based on the final ranking at each competition.
