Football Club Global Rating is generated based on three key algorithms: league, continental and domestic. The first concerns the rate of the league (evaluated in the KA Football Leagues Global Rating), the second (IC3) covers the club’s results in continental club competitions, while the third (DC2) relates to the club’s position in the national league. The rate of the continent also influences the position of the club. You can find a more detailed description below, read the-KA Logs tab or download PDF.
The KA Club Coefficient decides, as a rule, about the quarterly position in the KA Global Football Club Rating. This coefficient is calculated according to the formula:
= (IC3 x 3 + Global League Coefficient x 2 + Domestic Club Coefficient x 1) / 6
The value of the coefficient can be increased according to results on the FIFA Club World Cup.
The factor IC3 shown in the formula is a combination of the Continental Index and the Continental Club Coefficient
The Continental Index is a common term for Power Index of Federation (PIF) & the Virtual Performance Index of Federation (VIF). Both are related to strength of the continent (continental federation/confederation) from the perspective of clubs and leagues (not national teams).
Sum of PIFs assigned to all continents is 100%.
The PIF & VIF combined with Continental Club Coefficient give Inter-Continental Club Coefficient (IC3).
Continental Club Coefficient
Continental Club Coefficient results from the KA Continental Competitions Club Rankings, which are calculated on the basis of the results of clubs in the continental competitions from the last 4 (four) seasons, and sometimes also from the 5th previous season (depending on how advanced the current season is).
The competitions which are taken into account are: Champions Leagues, Copa Libertadores and other, similar continental cups, including second tier competitions.
The Continental Index (PIF) combined with Continental Club Coefficient gives Inter-Continental Club Coefficient (IC3).
