Leagues Ranking Procedure
The KA Global Football Leagues Rating is generated on the base on three key algorithms: FI2, CCF and CFRI. The first recognizes level of attraction and attractiveness from a global perspective, the second directly deals with strength of the league inside the continent, while the third one relates to overall global reputability of the country (“football reputability’). The rate of the continent also influences the position of the league in the ranking. You can find a more detailed description below or read the-KA Logs tab.
Every league in the the KA Global Football Leagues Rating is assigned a league ratio the KA League Coefficient.
While the KA League Points decide on the place held by the league in the world football league ranking, the KA League Coefficient is determined in relation to the place that the league has on the rating list.
The KA League Points are calculated according to the formula:
= (ICL Points x 3 + Attraction & Impact Points x 2 + Country Index x 1) / 6
The ICL Points in the formula are a combination of the Continent Index and the Continental Strength Factor.
The League Coefficient is used in the calculation of the KA Football Club Global Rating.
Power Index Federation (PIF) is related to strength of the continent (continental federation/confederation) from the perspective of clubs and leagues (not national teams).
Sum of indexes assigned to all continents is 100%.
The PIF combined with the Continental Strength Factor gives Inter-Continental League Points (ICL Points).
Attraction & Impact Factor
Primary Attraction & Impact Factor procedure (otherwise referred to as Flow Impact Index – FI2) recognizes level of attraction and attractiveness of the league from a global perspective and it is essential for the efficient calculating of the football leagues ranking worldwide.
One of the circumstances that is subject to particular attention is the number of players from a specific league participating in the FIFA World Cup and continental championships.
Continental Strength Factor
Continental Strength Factor (otherwise referred to as Continental Competitions Factor – CCF) results from the KA Continental Competitions Leagues 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 Strength Factor combined with the PIF gives Inter-Continental League Points (ICL Points).
Country Football Reputability Index (CFRI) – is a supplementary indicator for the calculation of the world soccer / football league ranking.
The index shows the position of the country in the football world, from the perspective of its overall recognition, reputation, prestige and quality of players.
The index is related to the FIFA ranking for national teams. However, it includes all countries, not only FIFA members but also non-FIFA members belonging to continental federations / confederations, including associate members.
