The KA Continental Rankings are an integral part of the KA Global Ratings, determining the performance of football clubs based on their international match results, primarily from continental competitions. The rankings are established separately for every federation on each continent, resulting in six individual components that are then combined to contribute to both the KA Football Leagues Global Rating and the KA Football Club Global Rating.
The IC3 (Inter-Continental Club Coefficient) is assigned to each club as the fundamental outcome of the continental club ranking. Similarly, the ICLP (Inter-Continental League Points) is assigned to a particular league as the primary result of the continental leagues ranking.
Both IC3 and ICLP rely upon the continental ranking points and consider the continent index (Power Index Federation) as an additional factor.
The IC3 and ICLP collectively make up 50% of the global coefficient in the KA Football Club Global Rating or the KA Football Leagues Global Rating.
The global rankings incorporate additional factors, in addition to the inter-continental indexes. These factors concern the position of the club in the national league and the league’s rating value for club ranking, while AIF and NFRI factors are used for league ranking.
the KA Continental Rankings are determined using the ELO method.
Details about the CPF procedure (the KA Continental Performance Factors – Elo Ranking) can be located at the bottom of the webpage (pdf file).
According to the ELO method, the points value of clubs and leagues is established by all official international matches played during continental or inter-continental competitions, which include the likes of the Champions League or other continental cups. Each continental ranking covers international matches organized or recognized by FIFA or its continental federations (confederations).
