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. 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 CAF – Leagues & Clubs Performance Rankings
Every club receives the points for match outcomes according to the ELO method.
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 ELO ranking covers international matches arranged or recognized by FIFA or the continental confederation. For Africa, this includes the Champions League, CAF Confederation Cup, CAF Super Cup as well as the FIFA Club World Cup, and possibly also the Arab Club Champions Cup or regional associations’ cups.
CAF MembersDepreciation Algorithm
As a general principle the ranking includes all CAF members (56), including two CAF associated countries (non-FIFA). However, not all CAF members are listed in the ranking according to a club football performance.

The reason is the very low activity of clubs from these countries in the last 12 months on the international stage. If a club has not played any matches in continental cups for years, then of course its score is zero. Nevertheless, if a club has scored points in previous periods, but has only played a few matches in recent months, e.g. in the preliminary phases, or have not played any matches, its cumulated score will be lowered and may eventually become negative in this way (depreciation algorithm).

Leagues score points as a derivative of the points assigned to the clubs, and if they have several negative clubs then they receive a zero or negative point value as a consequence and therefore do not appear in the present ranking (even if they were shown in previous rankings).
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.
