Calculation of UEFA Country Ranking
The UEFA Country Ranking (also known as the UEFA coefficient) is a ranking list drawn up by UEFA that makes it possible to compare the strengths of the various countries. The value of a country is calculated from the sum of the individual annual coefficients of the past 5 years.
Distribution of starting places
|Place||Champions League||Europa League|
|1 - 3||3||1||2||1|
|5 - 6||2||1||1||2|
|7 - 12||1||1||1||2|
|13 - 15||0||2||0||3|
|16 - 51||0||1||0||3|
|52 - 54||0||1||0||2|
Note: Based on the placement in the country ranking 2015-16, the distribution of the starting places for 2017-18 is determined (see above).
The narrow lines in the country ranking also indicate different entry rounds to the competitions (see UEFA Access List 2017-18).
