The formula for the FIFA Rankings/SUM algorithm is as follows:

P = Pbefore + I * (W – We)


 51 - 100    •    101 - 150 

The FIFA Rankings system is modeled after the Elo rating system, which is commonly used in zero sum games such as chess. The system is updated on a game-by-game basis, meaning that it is as up-to-date as it can be at all times. We're using this system to calculate the points.

Revision of the FIFA / Coca-Cola World Ranking

Overview

The new model for calculating the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking (FWR) was developed over two years during which time a large number of different algorithms was tested and extensively discussed.

Throughout this review and consultation process, the main aim was to identify an algorithm that is not only intuitive, easy to understand and improves overall accuracy of the formula, but also addresses feedback received about the previous model and provides fair and equal opportunities for all teams across all confederations to ascend the FWR.

About the new formula

The Elo method of calculation adds/subtracts points (as opposed to averaging points) for individual matches to/from a team’s existing point total. The points which are added or subtracted are partially determined by the relative strength of the two opponents, including the logical expectation that teams higher in the ranking should fare better against teams lower in the ranking.

Elo ratings have been used in other sports for decades. A modified version of the Elo rating is currently in use for the FIFA Women's World Ranking.

Termed by FIFA as “SUM”, the new algorithm developed specifically for the new FWR was fine-tuned to reflect a number of FIFA’s considerations, including the following:

- Adjusting the game weightings to give:

o less importance to friendly matches and more importance to final round competitions, such as the FIFA World Cup Finals

o more importance to knock-out stage matches than group stage matches in final competitions

- Excluding losses in knock-out rounds of final competitions from the calculation

The formula for the SUM algorithm is as follows:

P = Pbefore + I * (W – We)

Pbefore: Points before the match

I: importance of match


•  I= 05 Friendly matches played outside of International Match Calendar windows

•  I= 10 Friendly matches played during International Match Calendar windows

•  I= 15 Group phase matches of Nations League competitions

•  I= 25 Play-off and final matches of Nations League competitions

•  I= 25 Qualification matches for Confederations final competitions and for FIFA World Cup final competitions

•  I= 35 Confederation final competition matches up until the QF stage

•  I= 40 Confederation final competition matches from the QF stage onwards; all FIFA Confederations Cup matches

•  I= 50 FIFA World Cup final competition matches up until QF stage

•  I= 60 FIFA World Cup final competition matches from QF stage onwards 


W: result of the match

•  1 = win;    0.5 = draw;    0 = defeat

We: expected result of the match

•  We = 1 / (10(-dr/600) + 1)

With dr=difference in ratings of the two playing teams, 

i.e. dr = (Pbefore of Team A – Pbefore of TeamB)


Example: Team A has 1300 points before the match and wins a continental qualifier against team B that has 1500 points.

For team A the formula is: P=1300+25*(1–(1/(10 exp (-(1300–1500)/600) +1)))

For team B the formula is: P = 1500 + 25 * (0- (1 / (10 exp (-(1500-1300)/600) + 1)))

Thus, team A wins 17 points and has P = 1317 points after the match. Team B loses the same amount of points and thus ends up with 1483 points after the match.


Additional conditions

A few additional conditions included within the new SUM formula to address specific issues in international football include:

•  Penalty shoot-out (PSO): Matches decided in a PSO are treated as a draw for the losing team and as "half a win" for the winning team: W for the winning team is 0.75 instead of 1.0 for a win after regular or extended time.


If PSO, then 

W for losing team= 0.5

W for winning team= 0.75

Note: In some instances, games end with a winner after regular or extended time, but still include a PSO to determine the team that eventually will get to the next round. These games are treated as normal wins and defeats.
