EFU coefficient

From Alternate Sport History
Jump to navigationJump to search

The EFU coefficients make it possible to classify according to their performance the national championships and men's football clubs that are members of EFU based on the last five seasons.

EFU calculates two coefficients for different uses: - Club coefficient, used to rank individual club and find out which team receives in the first leg in European Cup and EFU Cup Winners' Cup. - Association coefficient, used to rank the collective performance of the clubs of each member association, for assigning teams exempted in European Cup and EFU Cup Winners' Cup.

The first ranking is established in July 1960 but it becomes effective from 1961-62 European competitions.

Calculation Method[edit | edit source]

2 points for a win, 1 point in the preliminary round

1 point for a draw, 0.5 point in the preliminary round

0 point for a loss


3 points for the European Cup winning team

2 point for the EFU Cup Winner's Cup


1 point for next round qualification

0.5 point for the qualification in the preliminary round


0 point granted during extra match


The points won by the teams of an association are added up and then divided by the number of teams of the federation qualified in the tournaments.
