UEFA Country Ranking is 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 in the forthcoming UEFA club competition.
UEFA Country Ranking determines the number of teams starting in the season after the next, not in the first season after the completion of ranking. For example UEFA Country Ranking 2014/2015 determined number of places allocated to associations in UEFA Champions League 2016/2017 and UEFA Europa League 2016/2017. As mentioned above, ranking is based on results in last five seasons, so for example Country Ranking 2014/2015 was based on results in Champions and Europa League seasons 10/11, 11/12, 12/13, 13/14 and 14/15.
