Description of Ranking Coefficients & Indexes

Club Coefficient

The KA Club Coefficient decides, as a rule, about the quarterly position of a club in world club ranking (the KA Global Football Club Rating).  This coefficient is calculated according to the formula:= (IC3 x 3 + Global League Coefficient x 2 + Domestic Club Coefficient x 1) / 6

The value of the coefficient can be increased according to positive results on the FIFA Club World Cup.

The factor IC3 shown in the formula is a combination of the Continental Index and the Continental Club Coefficient

Continent Index

Continental Index is a common term for the Power Index of Federation (PIF) & the Virtual Performance Index of Federation (VIF). Both are related to strength of the continent (continental federation/confederation) from the perspective of clubs and leagues (not national teams).

PIF & VIF combined with the Continental Club Coefficient give the Inter-Continental Club Coefficient (IC3).

Percentage number appeared above is the VIF.

Global League Coefficient

Global League Coefficient (the KA League Coefficient) arises from the KA Global Football Leagues Rating determined twice for the season. 

The KA League Coefficient can be find in rating table in the hidden column (four middle digits inserted in the KA Rate Code).

The percentage number appeared above is a result of the relation the KA League Coefficient assigned to the single league to the KA League Coefficient assigned to the first currently in the Rating: English Premier League with the coefficient of 1.559.

Continental Club Coefficient

Continental Club Coefficient results from the KA Continental Club Rankings, which are calculated on the basis of the ELO Method. 

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

Continental Index combined with Continental Club Coefficient gives Inter-Continental Club Coefficient (IC3).

Percentage number appeared above is a result of the relation the IC3 assigned to the club to the IC3 assigned to the first club currently in the KA Continental Competitions Club Ranking, set for appropriate continent.

Domestic Club Coefficient

Domestic Club Coefficient (DC2) refers to the club’s current position in the league table (Milestone League Table). The Milestone League Table is understood as the final table or table set in the middle of the season. The team holding the first place in the table is assigned the value of the Maximum Coefficient, the last team – the Minimum Coefficient, and for the others the proportionally. 

The Maximum Coefficient and the Minimum Coefficient have been set for the season 2021/22 &, respectively in the amount of: 1.559 and 0.454.

In the final table, teams relegated to lower league are not included, and at the same time the teams that have been promoted are taken into account. In the case where the league competition model provides for play-off / knockout matches or additional rounds – the league table is set for the needs of the KA Rating according to appropriate rules.

The percentage number appeared above is a result of the relation the Domestic Club Coefficient assigned to the club to the Domestic Club Coefficient assigned to the club holding currently first position in the Milestone League Table.
