the KA FOOTBALL CLUB GLOBAL RATING

Global World Football Leagues and Clubs

The ranking is based on three factors:

  • 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 according to CPF Procedure);
  • 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 according to AIF Procedure);
  • Nations Football Reputability Index (NFRI) 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).

Additional details find on the Procedure Tab.

Explanations of Columns

The table has 21 columns and contains 67 leagues (first or second level) that met the criteria for classifying them as Chamber or AnteChamber classes (Home Table of the Global Leagues Ranking – the KA). 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

FIFA 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 21, 2023.

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 Qatar 2022.

The first number represents the amount of players from a specific league participating in FWC 2022. 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”.

FWC statistic with numbers of players assigned to certain clubs and leagues one can find there:

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”.

Chamber and Antechamber together form the Home Table, that is displayed on this website.

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

World Leagues Ranking the KA

Fed & Fed Rank

Data in columns present the name of continental Federation/Confederation to which the country belongs, as well as the place held by the mother continental Federation/Confederation in the KA Federation Ranking.

The KA Federation Ranking, calculated on the basis of AIF and NFRI, is supporting ranking for the KA System, where important and necessary coefficients & converters are determined.

Continental Football (Soccer) Organizations

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.

Country Clusters

Country Cluster – a group of countries designated on the basis of political or ethnic criteria, and sometimes having a sub- or inter-regional character. This division allows you to look at the world of football from a different perspective than based on regional-zonal allocation. Grouping by clusters is not a balanced division. The assignment of all football countries to clusters can be seen by studying the Nations Football Reputability Index table.

League

The column provides names of leagues (divisions).

in the column “League Name (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.

Learn more on THE-KA LOGS tab or on the Procedure Tab.

+/- 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, but two arrows and an exclamation mark ⬆︎⬆︎ ! – promotion / degradation by more than two classes. Teardrop (spoked asterisk) ✻  means the new entry to the Home Table.

Continental Ranking (Cont Rank)

Number in this column indicates place held by the country in the KA Continental Leagues Ranking (at the date of the last quarterly ranking in 2023) in which it is determined Continental Performance Factors (CPF), of which the most important is ICLP.

Continental rankings  are calculated according to the ELO method on the basis of the results of the clubs performance in the continental club competitions organized or recognized by Federations. 

Competitions taken into account mainly: UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, UEFA Conference League, UEFA Super Cup, CAF Champions League, CAF Confederation Cup, CAF Super Cup, African Football League, AFC Champions League, AFC Cup, CONCACAF Champions League, CONCACAF Central American Cup / CONCACAF League, CONCACAF Caribbean Cup, CONCACAF Caribbean Shield, Leagues Cup, Campeones Cup, OFC Champions League, Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana and Recopa 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 Rankings can be found by clicking here.

Players ContCh

This column shows number of players representing the league who participated in the last continental national team championships: OFC Nations Cup 2016, AFC Asian Cup 2019UEFA Euro 2020, Copa América 2021CONCACAF Gold Cup 2023 and Africa Cup of Nations 2021.

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 consequently clubs relegated to lower divisions at the end of the season are treated as “lower division clubs”.

Because of Qatar attending to the AFC Asian Cup 2019, as well as the Gold Cup 2023, and because of all the Qatari players were from domestic league – the Qatari league figures are not fully comparatively.

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).
