UFEA Club Coefficient and Rankings

The club coefficient ranking is determined by how well its teams in the tournament and the previous five Champions League seasons, also depend on the coefficient of the clubs' association. The club coefficient is the total number earned by the club over the past five years plus twenty percent of the club's association coefficient.

In this method results determined after extra time, however results after penalty shootout are considered as draw. The Bonus points are not considered for entering the League group stage to win or draw points; they are awarded with four points for participating teams. The additional points to win or draw points are considered for entering the Champions League.

Qualifying round results are only considered when the eliminated team in one of the rounds.See below


Round
Points Awarded
Champions League Europa League
First qualifying round elimination 0.5 0.25
Second qualifying round elimination 1 0.5
Third qualifying round elimination 1
Play-off elimination 1.5
Group stage participation 4 2
Win in group stage or subsequent round 2 2
Draw in group stage or subsequent round 1 1
Round of 16 participation 5

Otherwise, the qualifying round results are considered only for the calculation of the association's coefficient and points are halved. The clubs awarded with 0 points when they eliminated in the 3rd qualifying round or the play-offs because they move into the UEFA Europa League and they receive participation points.

UEFA to determine a club's seeding in club competition draws by its ranking, Champions League and Europa League preliminary, first and second rounds.

Before 1999, the clubs were seeded such that those clubs not contest in the 1st and 2nd qualifying rounds in the tournament. To calculate the rankings of past five years of these clubs, the sum of ratio of the number of points attain divided by the games played by each team.
