the KA Continental Rankings


🌐 Homethe KA Continental Rankings

The KA Continental Rankings are key components of the KA Global  Ratings. 

Continental rankings are designed to assess the performance of football clubs on the basis of their results in international matches (mainly continental competitions). Rankings are created separately for each continent (federations) as a result of which it arises six components that next are together form a contribution to the KA Football Leagues Global Rating and the KA Football Club Global Rating.

The basic product of the continental club ranking is the IC3 (Inter-Continental Club Coefficient) assigned to a given club. The basic product of the continental leagues ranking is the ICLP (Inter-Continental League Points) assigned to a certain league.

Both IC3 and ICLP  are based on continental ranking points, taking additionally into account the index of the continent (Power Index Federation). 

The IC3, as well as ICLP constitute 50 % of weight of the global coefficient within the KA Football Club Global Rating or the KA Football Leagues Global Rating.  

In the global rankings, in addition to the inter-continental indexes, additional factors are used. In the case of the club ranking, these are factors relating to the club’s position in the national league and the league’s rating value. In the case of league ranking, these are the AIF and NFRI  factors. 

Find out more about the global rankings and their coefficients on the global rating pages (leagues / clubs) or on the-KA Logs Menu Tab

the KA Continental Rankings are calculated on the basis of the ELO method.

Description of the CPF procedure (the KA Continental Performance Factors – Elo Ranking)  one can find on the page bottom (pdf file).

Based on the ELO method, all official international matches played as part of continental competitions, such as the Champions League or other continental cups, create the points value of clubs & leagues. Each of the continental ranking covers international matches arranged/managed or recognized by FIFA or FIFA’s continental federations (confederations).
