How is FIFA Ranking Calculated?
FIFA Rankings are not mere numbers. These rankings are calculated after following a proper method and assessing each team’s wins and losses. Four unique elements are used to calculate the FIFA Ranking of a team. Here are the details about these four elements.
- The first element of the FIFA Rankings is quite straightforward - it takes into account the points earned by a team throughout a match. For every victory, a team receives three points for being the winner. In the case of a tie, one mark is awarded, and in the case of a penalty shootout victory, two points are awarded.
- The second element is the importance of the match itself. For small tournaments, one point is awarded to the team. For World Cup or Continental qualification matches, two points are awarded. For Continental competition finals or Confederations Cup finals, three points are awarded, and for World Cup, four points are awarded to a team.
- As per the recent FIFA Rankings, the third element to consider is the opposition's standing. There is a dedicated formula for calculating this component. To calculate it, FIFA Rankings deducts 200 from the team's ranking and then divides it by 100.
- Finally, the strength of the confederation is the ultimate consideration in the determination of the ranking of the team. The confederations' strength is signified by calculating the average of the team’s victories over the previous three World Cups.
