FIFA Football 2005 (also known as FIFA Soccer 2005 or simply FIFA 2005) is a video game based around the sport of association football, released in 2004. It was developed by EA Canada and published by Electronic Arts. It was released for the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, Microsoft Windows, Xbox, PlayStation Portable, GameCube, mobile phone, Gizmondo and the Game Boy Advance. The tagline for the game was: "A great player needs a great first touch." FIFA 2005 was the twelfth game in the FIFA series, the ninth in 3D and last game released in the United States for the PlayStation.

Improving the career mode, the game was extensively advertised and released much sooner than the usual late October date to avoid proximity with the release of "Pro Evolution Soccer 4" and the EA Big release, "FIFA Street". While some critics still considered it to have inferior gameplay to Konami's series, it was acknowledged to have improved significantly since the 2003 edition (favouring the on-line mode and casual/novice gamers).

The game featured a return of create-a-player mode, as well as an improved, 15 season-long career mode. The game's biggest difference compared to previous titles was the inclusion of first-touch gameplay which provided gamers the ability to perform "real-life" tricks and passes. It was also the first version to feature the full Mexican League, which boosted sales in the United States. Fact|date=May 2008 The soundtrack was headlined by British DJ Paul Oakenfold, who composed the FIFA Theme especially for the game. This was the last PS1 title ever released.

The main cover for the game featured Patrick Vieira, Fernando Morientes and Andriy Shevchenko. On the North American cover Oswaldo Sánchez replaced Vieira. [cite web| url=| title=IGN: FIFA 2005 Gets Covered| author=David Adams|| date=2004-10-04| accessdate=2008-07-02]
