the KA FOOTBALL LEAGUES GLOBAL RATING PROCEDURE ©

The ranking is based on three factors:

    1. Inter-Continental League Points (ICLP) which measures clubs performance in the international club competitions (and transpose and switch the score to leagues where clubs play games);
    2. Flow Impact Index (FI2) which measures players performance in the key international national team competitions (and transposes and switch the score to leagues where footballers play games);
    3. Nations Football Reputability Index (NFRI, formerly: CFRI) shows the position of the country in the football world, from the perspective of its overall recognition, reputation, prestige and quality of players (and transposes and switch the index score to leagues managing by the rated country).
