2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying draw seeding for CONCACAF (25 July 2014)

Assumptions:

- CONCACAF will keep the current qualifying system
- FIFA will use the FIFA ranking to seed the teams
- CONCACAF will choose the March 2015 ranking for seeding


The March 2015 FIFA ranking will include matches played between March 2011 and March 2015. This means we're currently in the last time frame.

This the March 2015 ranking (for CONCACAF only) using matches played up to and including July 24th, 2014 and matches scheduled up to March 2015 (only those on fifa.com).

The "1.0" part is computed this way: points gained / (number of matches played + scheduled).
