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
|1 - 4||4||0||2||0||0||1|
|7 - 10||1||1||0||1||0||2|
|11 - 15||0||2||0||1||0||2|
|16 - 50||0||1||0||0||0||3|
|51 - 55||0||1||0||0||0||2|
Note: Based on the placement in the country ranking 2023-24, the distribution of the starting places for 2025-26 is determined (see above).
The narrow lines in the country ranking also indicate different entry rounds to the competitions (see UEFA Access List 2025-26).
