Club Ranking ➝

Notes
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. 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 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. 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). 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, Super Cup 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 professional club in Newport, South Wales. The team competes in EFL League Two, the fourth tier of the English football league system. Wrexham AFC based in Wrexham competes in the National League, the fifth tier of the English football league system. Other Welsh club Merthyr Tydfil, currently playing in the Southern League – Premier South, in the seventh tier of the English system.

There are also other cases on the very 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 these 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.
