About the ranking

2019 is the first year with an official ranking system in the European Footvolley League and we set the ranking for each country based on their placements in the 2019 European Footvolley Championship (EFC) in Graz, Austria ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น.

There has never been placement games in the EFC, so in case of equal placements we have also used the placements from the EFC in 2017 and 2016 to separate the countries.

In case of tie breaks between countries we separated them with the following tie breakers:

  1. Match wins (first 2018, second 2017, third 2016)

  2. Head to head (first 2018, second 2017, third 2016)

  3. Point difference (first 2018, second 2017, third 2016)
