The booklet artwork features several images from the computer game/compilation album Ed Hunter, released the following year. The photoshoot features the band alongside professional footballers Stuart Pearce, Faustino Asprilla, Paul Gascoigne, Ian Wright, Patrick Vieira and Marc Overmars, as the album was released a few months before the 1998 World Cup in France. The "XI" in the album title refers both to this being the band's eleventh album, and the eleven players in a football team.

Music videos were made for the songs "The Angel and the Gambler" and "Futureal (live)."

Final album with Blaze Bayley.
