Club Ranking

Meaning of the continental ranking versus global ranking
The continental ranking has a technical nature because it shows a position of a league or club only from the perspective of international cups like Champions League. This is not a real power classification. If you want to find more accurate ranking with relation to actual football strength and quality you must look at the KA Football Leagues Global Rating or the KA Football Club Global Rating. The global leagues ranking consider also world-wide attraction and reputability of the league, as well as of the country of league. In the case of the global club ranking we can see difference to an even greater extent. The global club ranking refers since also to a position of a club in the domestic games, as well as takes into consideration a position of the league in the word. It means that clubs playing games in high rated leagues, but rarely participate in the continental competitions they also appear in that global ranking, sometimes on decent spots.
ELO CONCACAF – Leagues & Clubs Performance Rankings
So far, in the field of continental rankings, matrix-structural rankings with averaged historical result have been used. 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 was more and more difficult to apply out the matrix-structural rankings. The answer to this problem is the ELO method, which has been evolutionarily introduced into the KA system at the level of continental rankings (rankings relating to continental competitions).
The new national and professional Canadian Premier League started to play in April 2019 and 8 clubs participate in it. Toronto FC, Vancouver Whitecaps and CF Montréal play in the highest tier of American league system, in the Major League Soccer (MLS). Other clubs play at various levels of American leagues or Canadian regional leagues.
CONCACAF members who didn’t score points
CONCACAF’s 22 member countries do not provide professional nationwide leagues. Some clubs from these countries do not compete in any international competitions at all, and some compete only in the Caribbean Club Shield. The Caribbean Club Shield as the second tier of the Caribbean Club Championship for non-professional leagues was not included in the ranking before. Since the ELO Method become applied, all international matches arranged or recognized by FIFA or the continental federation are covered by rankings. For North & Central America, this includes CONCACAF Champions League, CONCACAF League, the Leagues Cup, Caribbean Club Championship as well as the FIFA Club World Cup. If the Caribbean Club Shield will back to the calendar it also will be take into account for rankings calculation.
However, due to the adopted method of “depreciation”, according to which the value assigned to a club not participating in a given ranking period in any match is reduced based on a special algorithm – some clubs in a given edition of the ranking may not appear because their sum result may be negative. This also means that the value of some leagues may be reduced to zero, and such leagues will not appear in the ranking.

IC3 (Inter-Continental Club Coefficient) – the indicator based on continental ranking points, taking into account the index of the continent (Power Index Federation). The IC3 is 50 % of a weight of the club coefficient within the KA Football Club Global Rating.


RPS (Relative Point Score), the score obtained in the ranking converted into the common formula used in the KA system, which allows you to compare values from different rankings and combine these values to determine global rankings.
