D.3 Association coefficient calculation - Champions League

Regulations of the UEFA Champions League

Competition Regulations
24 September 2020

The season coefficient of an association is calculated by adding up the points obtained by all its clubs in a given season (UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League) then dividing the total by the number of clubs from that association that took part in the two UEFA club competitions in question.

Points are awarded as follows:

  1. 2 points for a win (1 point for qualifying and play-off matches);

  2. 1 point for a draw (0.5 point for qualifying and play-off matches);

  3. 0 points for a defeat.

If a club refuses to enter a UEFA competition for which it qualified, or is excluded from or not admitted to the competition and is not replaced by another club from the same association, the association's coefficient is calculated by dividing the total number of points obtained by its clubs by the number of clubs the association was entitled to enter according to the access list.
