anyone know how those rankings are compiled? It seems strange as Liverpool are above united, the champions league must have a more significant weighting than the league, but chelsea have never reached the final so the league must count for quite a lot.

UEFA Country Ranking

The basis for the UEFA rankings is the performance of teams in the European Cups during a five year period. During that period each team gets two points for a win and one point for a draw. From 1999 on these points are halved for qualification matches: one point for a win and half a point for a draw. One bonus point is allocated for reaching the quarter final, the semi final and the final. Reaching the group stage of the Champions League yields three bonus points (before 1996: 2 points, from 1996-2004: 1 point). As of the 2004/05 season teams qualifying for the first knock-out round of the Champions League will be awarded with an extra bonus point. The so-called UEFA coefficients are calculated by taking an average, based on the total number of points divided by the total number of teams of each country. See the country coefficients of 2007 for an example of such a calculation.

The UEFA country ranking is computed by the sum of 5 coefficients in the last 5 years. See the country ranking of 2007 for an example of such a ranking list. To determine the participants in the Champions League and the UEFA Cup the last year ranking is used, because each country should know at the start of the season how many places it disposes.

UEFA Team Ranking

The UEFA team coefficients are calculated as the sum of the number of points of each individual team, and 33% of the country coefficient. Before 2004 the contribution of the country coefficient was 50%. See the team coefficients of 2007 for an example of such a calculation. For the calculation of the individual points of the team coefficients games played in qualifying rounds are not taken into account.

The UEFA team ranking is computed by the sum of 5 coefficients in the last 5 years. See the team ranking of 2007 for an example of such a ranking list. In this list the yellow lines with country information indicate the lowest possible value for a team of that country (even if that team didn't play any game in the last five years). The most recent team ranking is used for seeding of clubs for draws in the Champions League and the UEFA Cup.

Details of the calculation of the UEFA Coeffcients

Definition of terms.

cteams = number of teams per country,

tpoints = number of points per team, (excluding qualifying rounds)

tmatches = number of matches per team, and

cpoints = sum(tpoints) per country. (including 50% of qualifying rounds)

ccoef = country coefficient per year,

crank = country ranking over 5 years,

tcoef = team coefficient per year, and

trank = team ranking over 5 years.

1. Country Coefficients and Country Ranking

ccoef = rounddown(cpoints/cteams, 3)

crank = sum(ccoef);

2. Team Coefficients and Team Ranking

from 2004:

tcoef = 0.5 * rounddown( 0.33 * (2*cpoints/cteams), 3) + tpoints

trank = rounddown(sum(tcoef) , 3)

from 1999 until 2003:

tcoef = 0.5 * rounddown( 0.50 * (2*cpoints/cteams), 3) + tpoints

trank = rounddown(sum(tcoef) , 3)

until 1998:

tcoef = rounddown(tpoints/tmatches, 3)

trank = sum(tcoef)

where

sum = sum over 5 years, and

rounddown(..., 3) = truncation to 3 significant digits after the decimal point.
