Caribbean national team coefficient explained

First of all, this is not official, it's just something I came up with (based on the UEFA national team coefficient). Already sent it to the Caribbean Football Union, but I got no reply - and I really don't expect to receive one anytime soon.

For the 2010 Caribbean Championship draw it would be based on the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and the 2008-2009 Caribbean Championship and Gold Cup results, ratio 1:1. For non-FIFA CFU members, only the 2008-2009 Caribbean Championship and Gold Cup results will count for the ranking.

This is the math behind the coefficient:

  • 10,000 points for each match played
  • 10,000 points for a draw
  • 30,000 points for a win
  • 501 points for each goal scored
  • 500 points subtracted for each goal received
If a match ends in a penalty shoot-out, the winning team will receive 20,000 points, with the losers getting 10,000 points.

To account for the difficulty of each stage, there will be bonus points as follows:

FIFA World Cup:

  • 3,000 points for each match played in the Second Round
  • 21,000 points for each match played in the First Group Stage
  • 33,000 points for each match played in the Final Group Stage (the hex)
Caribbean Championship/Gold Cup:

  • 3,000 points for each match played in the Second Group Stage
  • 6,000 points for each match played in the Final Round Group Stage
  • 9,000 points for playing in the Caribbean Championship semifinals
  • 12,000 points for playing in the Caribbean Championship third place match
  • 15,000 points for playing in the Caribbean Championship final
  • 21,000 points for each match played in the Gold Cup group stage
  • 27,000 points for playing in the Gold Cup quarterfinals
  • 33,000 points for playing in the Gold Cup semifinals
  • 39,000 points for playing in the Gold Cup final
The total number of points for a competition is then divided by the number of matches played.
