2013 African Cup of Nations: Seeding for the final draw (24 February 2012)

CAF Ranking system

The last three tournaments count towards the ranking (ACN 2006, ACN 2008, ACN 2010).

Points are awarded in this fashion:

7 - winner
5 - finalist
3 - semifinalists
2 - quarterfinalists
1 - teams eliminated in the group stage

Points from the most recent tournament are multiplied by 3, the next one by 2, the last one by 1.

If two or more teams have the same total, they will be ranked on the total number of points (3 for a win, 1 for a loss).

Rank - Team - ACN 2008 - ACN 2010 - ACN 2012 - Total


1 Zambia 1 2 7 26
2 Ghana 3 5 3 22
