AFC MA Ranking update (7 April 2017)

Weighting for the FIFA ranking part of the formula dropped from 30% to 10%. The MA ranking at the end of the club season (November 2017) will be used to determine the slot allocations for the 2019 and 2020 seasons.



FIFA ranking points computed for November 2017, considering scheduled matches as defeats.

See previous update.

West

India overtook Jordan, thus the I-League champion will now host the Jordanian champions instead of traveling to West Asia.

Rank - Association - Total - NT Points - Club Points

1 United Arab Emirates 94.082 4.082 90.000
2 Qatar 81.837 3.407 78.430
3 Saudi Arabia 76.612 7.331 69.281
4 Iran 65.104 10.000 55.104
5 Uzbekistan 45.287 6.107 39.180
6 Iraq 36.113 3.987 32.126
7 Kuwait 28.054 0.816 27.238
8 Syria 26.566 5.149 21.417
9 India 25.443 2.512 22.931
10 Jordan 25.136 3.579 21.557

14 Oman 12.357 2.998 9.359
15 Turkmenistan 10.343 2.684 7.659
16 Palestine 8.865 2.998 5.867
17 Maldives 8.690 1.287 7.403
18 Kyrgyzstan 4.815 3.093 1.722
19 Yemen 2.669 2.669 0.000
20 Afghanistan 2.267 2.057 0.210
21 Bangladesh 1.994 0.597 1.397
22 Bhutan 1.073 0.863 0.210
23 Nepal 0.659 0.659 0.000
24 Sri Lanka 0.391 0.251 0.140
25 Pakistan 0.235 0.235 0.000

Using the same conditions as those in the 2017 AFC CL (i.e. Kuwait suspended; Iraq, Syria and Lebanon with no licensed clubs), these would be the allocations:

United Arab Emirates 3+1
Qatar                3+1
Saudi Arabia         3+1
Iran                 2+2
Uzbekistan           1+2
India                0+1
Jordan               0+1
Bahrain              0+1

Matches:

UAE 4 vs. (IND 1 vs. JOR 1)
QAT 4 vs. (UZB 3 vs. BHR 1)
KSA 4 vs. IRN 4
IRN 3 vs. UZB 2

East

Again, there's a switch, as Philippines overtake Myanmar. Not only will the PFL champions host in the Champions League preliminary round, but they will also benefit in the AFC Cup, as they will get 2 direct group stage slots instead of 1 direct and 1 playoff slot.

12 Singapore 15.056 1.413 13.643
13 Laos 3.976 0.973 3.003
14 Korea DPR 3.611 2.214 1.397
15 Cambodia 3.434 1.083 2.351

20 Timor-Leste 0.502 0.502 0.000
21 Mongolia 0.267 0.267 0.000

I assume Indonesian clubs will participate.

Korea Republic 3+1
China PR       3+1
Japan          2+2
Australia      2+1
Thailand       1+2
Hong Kong      1+1
Malaysia       0+1
Vietnam        0+1
Indonesia      0+1
Philippines    0+1
Myanmar        0+1
Singapore      0+1

Matches:

KOR 4 vs. (HKG 2 vs. MAS 1)
CHN 4 vs. (THA 3 vs. VIE 1)
JPN 3 vs. [THA 2 vs. (IDN 1 vs. SIN 1)]
JPN 4 vs. [AUS 3 vs. (PHI 1 vs. MYA 1)]
