FIFA ranking: October 2019 preview

Here are the minimum and maximum points for each team in the October 2019 ranking. FIFA will publish the ranking on October 24th.

Minimum and maximum points per team are determined with a small piece of software which calculates per match the minimum and maximum possible points for each participating team, given the minimum and maximum starting values of both teams before the match.
Note that only scheduled (and included) matches with both teams known at calculation time are incorporated in this analysis.

  1. Any chance you can post the September 2019 points totals with decimals like you've done in the past?

    1. Perfect, thank you! Not sure how I missed it. How do you know the decimals when the official FIFA rankings round off?

      Delete
    2. By performing the correct unrounded calculation of the points exchange in each included match since June 4th 2018.

  2. Hi Ed, I'm wondering if you can post the decimal points for each team based on the actual and latest published fifa ranking?
    As there is some differences between your last post with actual fifa ranking.

  3. To all readers:
    just to be completely tranparant I provide this link to an excel-sheet with detailed calculation information about all matches counting for the FIFA ranking since June 4th 2018.
    On tab Ranking values you will find the unrounded points for each team for each ranking since June 2018.

    2. Hi Ed. Love the spreadsheet. The data is incredibly useful to a personal project I am working on.

      If you don't mind, would you be able to please explain why CONCACAF Nations League matches have an I value of 25, instead of 15 like UEFA Nations League Matches? Thanks.

    3. You're welcome. If you are ready and willing to share the findings of your project, myabe we can read something about it here :)

      THe CONCACAF Nations League 2019/2020 is used to decide the teams that qualify for the Gold Cup 2021. That makes them continental qualifiers also, hence the I-factor of 25.

    1. Probably for the best for them, as they would struggle in the Hex. Outside the Hex, they probably have a better chance of reaching the play-off for the half spot.
