The logic of the IFCPF Ranking Points Procedure is that any country that participates in CP football wins points which enable it to climb the World and Regional Rankings Lists.
The Rankings Lists are maintained for the following reasons:
- Realistic comparison of teams
- To support seeding for tournament draws
- Highlight worldwide, regional and national participation
- Promotion of CP Football
World Rankings updated January 2022
NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the IFCPF Board decided that no ranking points would be awarded during 2020 and 2021 for tournaments. As most international competitions have been cancelled in these years, IFCPF wishes to minimise the impact that the disparity between nations and varying impact of the pandemic may have on our rankings.
