The KA Football Club Global Rating determines the best clubs in the world.
The KA Club Coefficient decides, as a rule, about the quarterly position in the KA Football Club Global Rating. This coefficient is calculated according to the formula:
= (IC3 x 3 + Global League Coefficient x 2 + Domestic Club Coefficient x 1) / 6
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 - ELO
Continental Club Coefficient results from the KA Continental Club Rankings, which are calculated on the basis of the ELO Method, taking into consideration international matches.
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 System Coefficient (the MaxSystem), the last team – the Minimum System Coefficient (the MinSystem), and for the others the proportionally.
The MaxSystem and the MinSystem according to the Start Season 2023/2024 Ranking (July 2023), are respectively in the amount of:1.612 and 0.397.
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 KA Club Global Rating. This distinguishes the KA Rating from most club rankings, based mainly on the results of continental games such as the Champions League.
