ABOUT THE EAST ASIAN CLUB RANKING

The East Asian Club Ranking (EACR) is a ranking system for men's club teams from East Asian Football Federation (EAFF) and ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) in association football.

The ranking is updated every month. The method used to rank club teams is similar to the FIFA World Rankings method but modified to take several local club-specific elements into account. The ranking tends to converge on an East Asian club team's true strength relative to its competitors during a four-year assessment period. Match data are primarily from the FIFA official website, the official websites of the leagues, Soccerway.com, etc.

EACR is recording the perfomance of the club teams from the following football associations:

Football Federation Australia (AUS) Chinese Football Association (CHN)
中國足球協會
National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (BRU) Guam Football Association (GUM)
Football Federation of Cambodia (CAM) Hong Kong Football Association (HKG)

CALCULATION METHOD

The calculation method is similar to that of the FIFA World Rankings. The factors taken into account for a single match are Match Result, Match Status, Opposition Strength and Association Strength. Clubs' Overall Points are a result of the average points gained over each year; matches from the previous 48 months are considered, with more weight being given to recent ones.

In EACR, clubs are ranked according to their Overall Points.

Ranking Points for a single match = Match Result × Match Status × Opposition Strength × Association Strength × 100

Overall Points = Average Points (AP)within last 12 mo. × 1.2 + AP12–24 mo. ago × 0.5 + AP24–36 mo. ago × 0.3 + AP36-48 mo. ago × 0.2
