Global World Football Leagues and Clubs

The ranking is based on two basic data sources: 1) the results of club matches in international club competitions for the last 4 years and 2) the number of players representing leagues in the last FIFA World Cup and the last continental championships completed. In addition, the points obtained are adjusted to a very limited extent by the country’s reputation index (CFRI). The country’s reputation index is primarily based on the results of the national teams.

Explanations of Columns

The table has 21 columns and contains 73 leagues (first or second level) that met the criteria for classifying them as Chamber or AnteChamber classes. The first column contains the number denoting the position held.

Country

The columns provide names of countries carrying out the football / soccer leagues. By “countries” should understand “football countries”, and therefore not only independent states. In some items in the “Clubs Country” column, more than one flag may appear. It means that a specific league also has clubs from other countries.

Country - special status of clubs

The last column lists the name of the country or countries from which clubs in the league presently come from.

FIFA NT Rank

In this column you can compare the position of the country (league) with the position of the national team. The number indicates the place held by the country in the the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking at the date of  December 10, 2020.

In the case of second level leagues listed in the KA Rating – this number is the same like for the highest league.

Players FWC

This column shows number of players representing the league who participated in the last FIFA World Cup Russia 2018.

The first number represents the amount of players from a specific league participating in FWC 2018. The second number means the amount of all players from all leagues (divisions) from a certain country attending to the tournament. If it is only one number that means all the players were from the 1st level league.

The players are ordered to the league (club) as at the start of the tournament.

Clubs promoted to upper divisions at the end of the season are considered as “upper division clubs” and conseqently clubs relegated to lower divisions at the end of the season are treated as “lower division clubs”.

Class & Class Star Mark

There are 4 (four) Tiers: World, Continental, Inter-Zone & Domestic. Each of the Tier is divided into Classes. 

The highest Tier has two Classes: World Ultimate & World Top. The others have 3 Classes. Continental Tier is divided to: Upper, Prime & Lower, but Inter-Zone Tier is divided to: Upper, Middle & Lower.

Classes, with the exception of the Classes assigned to the lowest Tier, are marked with asterisks, from 6 to 0.5 asterisk (white star). They are called “the Chamber”.

The 9th (Intermediate) and the 10th class (Secondary) are also called “the AnteChamber”.

The 11th class (Elementary Class) has separate table: the Yard Table.

League

The column provides names of leagues (divisions).

I-League shares the top spot in the Indian football system with the Indian Super League (ISL) – franchise-based league. The ISL has been granted official recognition by the AFC, meaning there are two collateral top divisions in India since 2017/18. For this reason, the KA system recognizes them as one league.

in the 12th column “League Name (eng / fra / lat trans)” the name of the league is transliterated into the Latin alphabet if the country using an alphabet other than the Latin alphabet. The name is given mainly in English, but also in French or other phonetic record – accordingly and appropriately to the country.

Points (Pts)

Points (the KA League Points) obtained by single league according the KA Algorithms System.

The value reflecting to the application of two types of algorithms: the Attraction & Impact Factors (AIF: FI2/CFRI) and the Continental Competitions Factors (CCF); for both weight is aprox. 50%. Learn more on THE-KA LOGS tab or on the Leagues Rating Home Page.

+/- Place & Up/Down Class

Columns show difference in relation to the position held in the previous season and difference in relation to the class assigned in the previous season.

The league can change position and the class does not change at the same time. It is also possible to reverse situations, and even those in which the direction of change is different in relation to the position and the class.


Two arrows ⬆︎⬆︎ indicate promotion / degradation by two classes, two arrows and an exclamation mark ⬆︎⬆︎ – promotion / degradation by more than two classes and the cirled bullet ⦿ – no change. Teardrop (spoked asterisk) ✻  means the new entry.

Continental Ranking (Cont Rank)

The place held by the country in the KA Continental Competitions Leagues Ranking (on a day of the KA Global Football Leagues Rating) in which it is determined Continental Competitions Factors (CCF). The CCF are calculated on the basis of the results of clubs in the continental club competitions for the last 4/5 seasons. Competitions taken into account: UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, CAF Champions League, CAF Confederation Cup, AFC Champions League, AFC Cup, CONCACAF Champions League, CONCACAF League, CFU Club Champions’ Cup, Leagues Cup, OFC Champions League, Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana. Differences (sometimes significant) may be observed between the position of the country in the Continental Ranking and the position on the continent measured by the Global Ranking. This is due to the fact that Continental Rankings are based only on the results of matches played in continental club competitions (like some kind of Champions League), while in the Global Ranking other factors are also taken into account. Because of the KA Continental Rankings deal with countries (league systems) but not to specified divisions, in the case of second level leagues listed in the KA Rating – this number is the same like for the highest league. The Continental Competitions Leagues Ranking can be found by clicking here.

Players Cont Ch

This column shows number of players representing the league who participated in the last continental national team championships: OFC Nations Cup 2016, UEFA Euro 2016, AFC Asian Cup 2019, CONCACAF Gold Cup 2019, Copa América 2019 and Africa Cup of Nations 2019.

The first number represents the amount of players from a specific league participating in the last all continental championships. The second number means the amount of all players from all leagues (divisions) from a certain country attending to those tournaments. If it is only one number that means all the players were from the 1st level league.

The players are ordered to the league (club) as at the start of the tournaments.

Clubs promoted to upper divisions at the end of the season are considered as “upper division clubs” and conseqently clubs relegated to lower divisions at the end of the season are treated as “lower division clubs”.

Because of Japan & Qatar attending to the AFC Asian Cup 2019, as well as the Copa America 2019 – some of players could be counted twice.

In the case of India, first number deals with I-League, but the second is related to all players from Indian leagues, including ISL.

the KA Rate Code

The KA Rate Code contains three data: class name (abbreviation), the KA League Coefficient and the League Threshold.

Every league in the the KA Global Football Leagues Rating is assigned a league ratio (the KA League Coefficient), alongside the KA League Points. While the KA League Points decide on the place held in the rating list, the KA League Coefficient is determined in relation to the place that the league has on the rating list. The KA League Coefficient is extremely important for determining the KA Club Coefficient (weight 33%).

The League Treshold index determines the number of teams from the single league, which qualify for the KA Football Club Global Rating in accordance with the „national algorithm” (one of two used qualification algorithms).

Learn more on THE-KA LOGS tab or on the Club Rating Home Page.

Zone/Region

Each territory of continental federation/confederation is divided for leagues zones. Each league zone consists of several club zones (see the KA Club Global Rating).

The zones have been designated according to the regional structure of some Confederations (AFC, CAF, CONCACAF) or on the basis of criteria related to geographical and political factors, including in the context of football conditions (CONMEBOL, OFC, UEFA).

Special separate rules are applied as follows:

  • OFC territory is not divided into zones; all OFC leagues belong to zone of the “Asia-Pacific”, and all of OFC clubs are in the “Australia & Oceania” zone; the “Australia & Oceania” comprises also clubs from AFC countries: Guam and Northern Mariana Islands, as well as two Indonesian provinces: West Papua and Papua;
  • CONMEBOL territory belongs to one leagues zone of the “South America”; the “South America” collects also the Guianas leagues, which are members of CONCACAF; clubs from the Guianas belong to the “CONCACAF Caribbean and the Guianas”; CONMEBOL club area is dived into two zones: North CONMEBOL/ Amazonia Zone  and CONMEBOL Southern Cone Countries; this division relates it to entire countries and not to geographic regions; therefore the clubs from the southern Brazilian states are allocated to CONMEBOL North;
  • Euro-Asian UEFA leagues zone comprises UEFA members Asian countries as well as trans-continental states: Russia, Kazachstan and Turkey; clubs from Russia in majority are assigned to “UEFA Eastern Europe and the Baltics” zone, but only those located in Asia or in six Russian republics of the North Caucasus belong to the “UEFA Central / North Asia and Caucasia”; clubs from East Thrace belong to “UEFA Central / East Mediterranean” zone, but other Turkish clubs are assigned to the “UEFA Asian Middle East”; Kazakh clubs, those from European part (if any), are allocated to “UEFA Eastern Europe & the Baltics” zone; 
  • North Africa leagues zone and North America leagues zone have at either one clubs zone, respectively: the CAF North Africa and the CONCACAF North America;
  • Other clubs are assigned to the zones according to their geographical location (e.g.Corsica is in the UEFA Central / East Mediterranean), unless it causes “moving” them to league zone unambiguously belonging to other continental confederation; then, in such cases clubs have to be assigned to the same club zones as most clubs from the specific country (e.g. if Egyptian clubs from Asian Sinai had been rated they would have been assigned to “CAF North Africa” zone, but not to the “AFC West Asian”).

Division Level

General rule of the ranking implies to show the highest divisions. However some of lower divisions have better strength, attractiveness and renown then many of the first level leagues. Therefore the KA System provides also positioning of lower level leagues and in the ranking one can find some of the second level divisions. In the Yard Table (lower rated table) also can be find the third level leagues or even lower level divisions.
