Notes
ELO UEFA – International Matches Leagues & Clubs Performance Rankings
So far, in the field of continental rankings, matrix-structural rankings with averaged historical result have been used. We believe such rankings give the complete picture of what we can call reputation, which also includes an assessment of quality and strength and they are the best if they well-designed. Nevertheless, due to the introduction of the third tier of games in Europe, as well as the widespread confusion that is commonly taking place in the competitions around the world due to the COVID epidemic (canceled competitions, phases or matches), it is more and more difficult to apply out the matrix-structural rankings. The answer to this problem is the ELO method, which will be evolutionarily introduced into the KA system at the level of continental rankings (rankings relating to continental competitions). The ELO is not perfect, nevertheless we have taken all care to keep the same level of accuracy amd adequacy. Each of the continental rankings covers international matches arranged or recognized by FIFA or the continental federation. For Europe, this includes the Champions League, Europa League, Conference League as well as the FIFA Club World Cup.
Multinational Leagues
Some countries have more than one flag displayed. This means that clubs from other countries can participate in the league systems of these countries, although only those countries where foreign clubs are usually present in the first or second division are marked in this way.
Great Britain & Ireland
Parts of the UK: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have a separate membership in UEFA / FIFA and have their own leagues. 

Despite the Welsh Premier League – Swansea City and Cardiff City play in the English Premier League or EFL Championship. Newport County is a club in Newport, South Wales. The team competes in the English football league system (lower level).

There are also other cases on the lower level, when clubs form Wales, Scotland and England play in the leagues of the system belonging to other country in the UK. There are also some examples dealing with border issues e.g. the New Saints F.C. is a club representing Oswestry in England and at the same time Llansantffraid-ym-Mechain in Wales plays in Welsh Premier League.

Derry City F.C. based in Northern Ireland, plays in the league of Ireland Premier Division.

British Crown Dependencies: Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man have separate leagues and national teams and they are not member of UEFA / FIFA. Some of clubs from theese countries participate in the lower divisions of English league system (Jersey Bulls F.C., Guernsey F.C., F.C. Isle of Man). The Priaulx League (Guernsey), the Jersey Football Combination (a league of Jersey) and the Isle of Man Football League are affiliated with the English FA, but they do not form a part of the English football league system. The Isle of Man is also a member of the FA, as county football assocciation. People born in the Isle of Man are eligible to play for official UK national teams.

Following British overseas territories have separate membership in FIFA and/or continental federations: Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Gibraltar, Montserrat, and Turks & Caicos Islands.
France & Monaco
Monaco is not a member of UEFA/FIFA and does not have a professional league. AS Monaco FC plays in the French football league system.

Following French overseas territories have separate a membership in FIFA and/or continental federation: French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, New Caledonia, Reunion, Saint Martin and Tahiti (French Polynesia).
Netherlands
Following Dutch overseas territories have separate a membership in FIFA and/or CONCACAF: Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao and Sint Maarten.
Liechtenstein / Switzerland
Liechtenstein has a membership of UEFA/FIFA but all clubs in Liechtenstein play in the Swiss football league system. FC Büsingen is a German club based in the exclave of Büsingen that competes in the Swiss league system.
Spain & Andorra
FC Andorra is a club based in Encamp, Andorra. Although based in Andorra, they compete in the Spanish football league system (in lower divisions), not in the Andorran Primera Divisió.
Denmark
