UEFA Country Ranking
2017 / 2018
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 2017/2018 will determine number of places allocated to associations for Champions League and Europa League in season 2019/2020 (you can see currently unofficial allocation of places for each Country Ranking position on the right side of this table).
1) If CL title holder qualifies for CL GS also via league, league champion from country on 11th place will start in GS.
2) If EL title holder qualifies for CL GS also via league, 3rd team from country on 5th place will start in GS.
3) Because Liechtenstein doesn't organise the league system, only cup winner qualifies for European Cups (Europa League).
4) UEFA may allow participation of teams from Kosovo (new member of UEFA since 2016).
5) Example of allocating of places in European Cups (due frequent confusions): Austria finish at 10. position in this Country Ranking 2017/2018, so winner of Austrian Bundesliga 2018/2019 will start in Champions League group stage in season 2019/2020.
Numbers in columns indicate earned points in given season. Column "clubs" indicates number of clubs in current European season (still in competitions / total number of clubs).
There is access list next to the table (Champions League 2019/2020 in blue color and Europa League 2019/2020 in orange). Ordinal numbers (1., 2., 3. etc.) indicate league position of club and C represents winner of domestic cup. Lines indicate differences in allocations of places between final positions.
