The KA Club Coefficient decides, as a rule, about the quarterly position in the KA Global Football Club Rating. This coefficient is calculated according to the formula:
= (IC3 x 3 + Global League Coefficient x 2 + Domestic Club Coefficient x 1) / 6
The value of the coefficient can be increased according to unexpected positive results on the FIFA Club World Cup.
The factor IC3 shown in the formula is a combination of the Continental Index and the Continental Club Coefficient
The Continental Index is a common term for Power Index of Federation (PIF) & the Virtual Performance Index of Federation (VIF). Both are related to strength of the continent (continental federation/confederation) from the perspective of clubs and leagues (not national teams).
Sum of PIFs assigned to all continents is 100%.
The PIF & VIF combined with Continental Club Coefficient give Inter-Continental Club Coefficient (IC3).
Continental Club Coefficient
Continental Club Coefficient results from the KA Continental Competitions Club Rankings, which are calculated on the basis of the results of clubs in the continental competitions from the last 4 (four) seasons, and sometimes also from the 5th previous season (depending on how advanced the current season is).
The competitions which are taken into account are: Champions Leagues, Copa Libertadores and other, similar continental cups, including second tier competitions.
The Continental Index combined with Continental Club Coefficient gives Inter-Continental Club Coefficient (IC3).
Domestic Club Coefficient
The Domestic Club Coefficient (DC2) refers to the club’s current position in the league table (Milestone League Table). The Milestone League Table is understood as the final table or table set in the middle of the season. The team holding the first place in the table is assigned the value of the Maximum Coefficient, the last team – the Minimum Coefficient, and for the others the proportionally.
The Maximum Coefficient and the Minimum Coefficient have been set for the season 2017/18, respectively in the amount of: 1.546 and 0.467.
In the final table, teams relegated to lower league are not included, and at the same time the teams that have been promoted are taken into account. In the case where the league competition model provides for play-off / knockout matches – the league table is set for the needs of the KA Rating according to appropriate rules.
Getting a high DC2 with a simultaneous high value of the KA League Coefficient allows clubs that are rare or never present in continental cups – get a decent position in the club rating. This distinguishes the KA Rating from most club rankings, based mainly on the results of continental games such as the Champions League.
