2010 WC: Seeding formula (August 2008 update)

Seeded teams for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa.

Qualified teams determined using the current standings and the FIFA rankings.

No new teams this month.

England seeded, France unseeded (same total, but England's performance part is higher). I'm not sure how FIFA would go about this though...

  2. Hi Stevan!

    All of your 16 teams would be unseeded because the World Cup performance part of the seeding formula wouldn't be big enough.
