AFC MA Ranking update (15 September 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 and Jordan overtook Kuwait, while Tajikistan leapfrogged Bahrain. (More on this here). If Istilkol get at least 1 point vs. Bengaluru, Tajikistan will overtake Jordan and will face India's I-League champions (the ISL champions will be IND 2), instead of Uzbekistan's 3rd team.

India are very close to Syria (in 7th), but a long way behind Iraq (6th and direct ACL group stage slot).

  1. Mate, is there any website listing all the points history for MA rankings like what Bert Kassies do for UEFA rankings? If there isn't, I want to try creating it

    1. Not that I'm aware of. That would be a great resource - go ahead!
