Club Ranking ↓

Meaning of the continental ranking versus global ranking
The continental rankings are technical in nature, as they only show the position of a league or club from the perspective of international cups, such as the Champions League. If you want to find a more accurate ranking in terms of actual football soccer strength and quality, you need to look at the KA Football Leagues Global Rating or the KA Football Club Global Rating

What makes global rankings different from continental rankings is the consideration of more factors. 

A global league rating takes into account, in addition to the performance of clubs in international competitions, the level of attractiveness and reputation as measured by the number of players from a given league appearing in top national teams (AIF). In addition, we take into account a country’s overall football soccer reputation, as measured by national team historical results and the most prestigious individual football soccer awards (NFRI).

The global club ranking shows the difference from the continental ranking to an even greater extent. The global club ranking takes into account a club’s position in domestic league competitions in conjunction with the global league rating. This means that clubs that play in highly ranked leagues but rarely participate in continental competitions can also appear in the global club ranking, sometimes in decent places.
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.

Because leagues receive points as derivated values of club points, so if clubs do not collect any points leagues don’t have positive score and not appear in the ranking.

Being ranked therefore demands clubs activity in the area of international competitions. Whereby it is not sufficient to have points by a club picked up in any past time. ELO rankings in the KA system have a depreciation algorithm. It consists, in short, in the fact that the point value of a club not playing matches is gradually reduced. As a result, such a club after some time acquires a zero or negative value and drops out of the ranking. This can also translate into the national league and, as a result, the league can also get a zero or negative value. This is other reason that some countries are not shown in the league table, even if they appeared in the past.
the Ranking Points, RPS and IC3
Ranking points (ELO points) are calculated according to the ELO method. In terms of leagues, these points are derived from the values obtained by clubs.

The tables also show values labeled RPS and IC3.

RPS (Relative Point Score) is a value that results from the fact that the ELO points obtained in a ranking are converted according to the same formula used throughout the KA system, which allows values from different continental rankings to be compared and combined to determine global rankings.

IC3 (Inter-Continental Club Coefficient) is an indicator dedicated only for clubs and it is based on the continental ranking points, taking into account the index of the continent (Power Index Federation), as well as AIF value. It is very important indicator for the KA Football Club Global Rating.
