League Coefficient

Every league in the the KA Global Football Leagues Rating (determined twice for the season)is assigned a league ratio (the KA League Coefficient), and the points (the KA League Points). While the KA League Points decide on the place held by the league in the world football league ranking, the KA League Coefficient is determined in relation to the place that the league has on the rating list.  The KA League Points are calculated according to the formula: = (ICL Points x 3 +  Attraction & Impact Points x 2 + Country Index x 1) / 6 The ICL Points in the formula are a combination of the Continent Index and the Continental Strength Factor. The coefficient is used in the calculation of the KA Football Club Global Rating.

Continent Index

Power Index Federation (PIF)  is related to strength of the continent (continental federation/confederation) from the perspective of clubs and leagues (not national teams).

Sum of indexes assigned to all continents is 100%.

The PIF combined with the Continental Strength Factor gives Inter-Continental League Points (ICL Points).

Attraction & Impact Factor​​

Primary Attraction & Impact Factor procedure (otherwise referred to as Flow Impact Index – FI2)  recognizes level of attraction and attractiveness of the league from a global perspective. One of the circumstances that is subject to particular attention is the number of players from a specific league participating in the FIFA World Cup and continental championships. Percentage number, which appeared above is a result of the relation the FI2 assigned to the single league to the average value of FI2 assigned to the top 3 leagues ranked according FI2: English Premier League, Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A (​1 747,986 pts).

Continental Strength Factor

Continental Strength Factor results from the KA Continental Competitions Leagues Rankings, which are calculated on the basis of the results of clubs in the continental competitions from the last 4 (four) seasons, and sometimes also from the 5th previous season (depending on how advanced the current season is). 

The competitions which are taken into account are: Champions Leagues, Copa Libertadores and other, similar continental cups, including second tier competitions. 

The Continental Strength Factor combined with the PIF gives Inter-Continental League Points (ICL Points).

Percentage number appeared above is a result of the relation the points from the Continental Competitions Leagues Ranking assigned to the league to the points assigned to the league hold top position currently in the KA Continental Competitions League Ranking, set for appropriate continent.

Country Index

Country Football Reputability Index (CFRI) – is a supplementary indicator for the calculation of the world soccer / football league ranking.

The index shows the position of the country in the football world, from the perspective of its overall recognition, reputation, prestige and quality of players.

The index is related to the FIFA ranking for national teams. However, it includes all countries, not only FIFA members but also non-FIFA members belonging to continental federations / confederations, including associate members.

Percentage number appeared above is a result of the relation CFRI points assigned to the country of the league to the points assigned to the first country in the CFRI Rank.
