-- uefa associations' club coefficient ranking --

 

ASSOCIATIONS' REPRESENTATION IN UEFA COMPETITIONS

The UEFA Associations' Club Coefficient Rankings are based on the results of each association's clubs in the five previous UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League seasons. The rankings determine the number of places allocated to an association (country) that will participate in UEFA club competitions (Champions League and Europa League). The final ranking at the end of this UEFA season (2017–18) will be used to determine the number of places for each association in the 2019-2020 Champions League and Europa League.

  • Associations' Ranked 1st-4th: Earn 4 teams to the UEFA Champions League and 3 teams to the UEFA Europa League.
  • Associations' Ranked 5th-6th: Earn 3 teams to the UEFA Champions League and 3 teams to the UEFA Europa League.
  • Associations' Ranked 7th-15th: Earn 2 teams to the UEFA Champions League and 3 teams to the UEFA Europa League.
  • Associations' Ranked 16th-17th: Earn 1 teams to the UEFA Champions League and 3 teams to the UEFA Europa League.
  • Associations' Ranked 18th-51st: Earn 1 team to the UEFA Champions League and 3 teams to the UEFA Europa League.*Liechtenstein only receive one place to the Europa League since they only domestic cup competition.
  • Associations' Ranked 52nd-54th: Earn 1 team to the UEFA Champions League and 2 teams to the UEFA Europa League.
  • Association Ranked 55th: Earn 1 team to the UEFA Champions League and 1 team to the UEFA Europa League.
 

points system

  • Two points are awarded for each win by an association’s club, and 1 point for a draw (points are halved in the qualifying rounds). **Results determined by extra time DO count in the allocation of points, whereas results determined by penalty-shootouts do not affect the allocation of points**
  • Association’s clubs that reach the quarter-finals, semi-finals, or final of the Champions League or Europa League are awarded an extra point for each round. 
  • In addition, 4 points are awarded for participation in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League and 5 points for qualifying for the round of 16. 
 

Coefficient calculation

The coefficient is calculated by using an average score: taking the number of points obtained by an association's clubs and diving it by the total number of clubs representing that association in that season’s UEFA competitions. The resulting number is then added with the final total of the previous four seasons to calculate the association's coefficient. If two associations have the same coefficient, the association with the higher coefficient in the most recent season is placed first.

15 Switzlerland 7.200 6.900 5.300 4.300 3.100 26.800 3/5

Since Greece is represented in this year's UEFA season with 5 teams, this year's coefficient will be calculated by dividing the total number of points obtained by five. This number will be added to the previous 4 seasons and will yield Greece's final coefficient. Greece are currently 14th in the Coefficient rankings meaning next year's Greek SuperLeague and Greek Cup (2018-2019) will yield a total of 5 teams for the 2019-2020 UEFA season:  

  • Greek SuperLeague Champion: Enters the UEFA Champions League Third Qualifying Round (Champions Route)
  • Greek Super League Runner-up: Enters the UEFA Champions League 2nd Qualifying Round (League Route)
  • Greek Cup Champion: Enters the UEFA Europa League 3rd Qualifying round
  • Greek Super League 3rd Place: Enters the UEFA Europa League 2nd Qualifying round
  • Greek Super League 4th Place: Enters the UEFA Europa League 2nd Qualifying round

A reminder, Greece finished 14th in last year's Coefficient rankings meaning that this year's 2017/18 Greek Superleague & Cup will yield 2 teams to the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League and three teams to the 2018/19 UEFA Europa League. Their placements in each competition can be found here (bottom). For more informaiton about Greece's goal finish in this year's UEFA Association's ranking view this article here.


-- uefa clubs' coefficient ranking --

The club coefficient rankings are based on the results of clubs competing in the five previous seasons of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. This ranking determines the seeding of clubs in all UEFA competition draws.

 

Points System

Champions League & Europa League Group Stage and Beyond: Teams can only receive points for results during and after the Champions League and Europa League Group Stage. Two points are awarded for a win and one point for a draw. Teams are also awarded bonus points for reaching different stages of each competition (explained below).

Champions League & Europa League Qualifying: Teams do not receive points for match results in the qualifying round. Instead, when a club is eliminated during qualifying, a fixed number of points are awarded based on what qualifying round the team was eliminated in (see tables below). Clubs in the Champions League Group Stage are awarded 4 bonus points, whereas teams in the Europa League are awarded a minimum of 2 points if they do not accumulate two points from their group stage matches. The qualifying round match results are taken into account only for the calculation of the association's club coefficient and are halved (explained in previous section).

Coefficient calculation: Clubs' coefficients are determined by the sum of all points won in the previous five years. Up until the 2017/18 season. an additional 20% of their association's coefficient was added to the club coefficient, however this has been removed starting the 2017/18 UEFA season. The only time 20% of the association's coefficient is used for the club rankings, is when a respective club has not competed in European competitions in the last five seasons.
