Club Ranking

Notes
Meaning of the Asian continental ranking versus global ranking
The Asian continental rankings (Asian Leagues Ranking & Asian Clubs Ranking) have a technical nature because they show 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 AFC – International Matches Leagues & Clubs Performance Rankings
Every club receives the points for match outcomes according to the ELO method scheme.
The points are determined by the relative strength of the two opponents where the factor of an expected outcome is calculated and with using the factors related to completed match: importance match factor, the outcome factor and the difference goals factor.

Each of the continental rankings covers international matches arranged or recognized by FIFA or the continental federation. For Asia, this includes the Champions League, AFC Cup as well as the FIFA Club World Cup, and possibly also the Arab Club Champions Cup, SAFF Club Championship and J.League Cup / Copa Sudamericana Championship, if they will back to the calendar.
Multinational Leagues
Some countries have more than one flag displayed (on desktop screens: the small one in the corner of the bigger). 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.
Australia / New Zealand
New Zealand club Wellington Phoenix competes in the Australian A-League.
Singapore / Japan
Albirex Niigata Singapore FC is a football club which compete in Singapore Premier League. The club is a satellite team of Albirex Niigata of Japan.
India
I-League shares the top spot in the Indian football system with the Indian Super League (ISL) – franchise-based league. The ISL has been granted official recognition by the AFC, meaning there are two collateral top divisions in India from 2017/18. Currently India clubs agreed to work together on league roadmap, according to it, among others, since season 2019-20, the ISL will attain the status of premiere league competition in Indian football and not later then season 2024-25, it will be implemented of a fully promotion and relegation system into the top league, and there will be an abolition of two parallel leagues.
Palestine
Palestine is a member of FIFA & AFC. Due to political reason the football division system is parted into two: the West Bank league system, with the West Bank Premier League, as the top division, and the Gaza Strip system, with the Gaza Strip Premier League as of the highest level division on this territory.
the Ranking Points, RPS and IC3
The Ranking Points are calculated according to the ELO Method. As regards of leagues these points are a derivative of the values obtained by clubs.

RPS (Relative Point Score) is the value that arises from that the ELO points obtained in the ranking are converted into the common formula used in the KA system, which allows you to compare values from different continental rankings and combine these values to determine global rankings. As regards of clubs the RPS not only takes into consideration the results of matches in continental competitions, but also takes into account the global Attraction and Impact Factor (AIF). Under the AIF procedure most influential clubs are selected, which had the biggest impact on results of last completed FIFA World Cup and continental championship of national teams. The influence of the AIF is not significant and, as a rule, it does not change the order of the ranking.

IC3 (Inter-Continental Club Coefficient) is an indicator based on the 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. The IC3 is taking into consideration the AIF to a small extent, too.
