Country Football Reputability Index
Country Football Reputability Index (CFRI) – is a supplementary indicator for the calculation of the KA Leagues Rating.
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. It is updated every quarter and additionally determined at the end of the season (mid-year).
The list includes all FIFA members, as well as non-FIFA members but belonging to continental federations / confederations, including associate members (independent states, dependant and associated territories or parts of a country).
The Index is based on the results of national teams, in accordance with the ELO method (in similar way as in the FIFA Ranking), which are adjusted by the Long-Term Reputation Coefficients. The Coefficients are constructed based on general track record in the last four proper (tournament) parts of the FIFA World Cup, continental championships and olimpic tournaments and also take into account the role of the host in these tournaments (12-16 years back).
