A new method, which came into effect in August 2018, is currently used by FIFA. FIFA called this new version “SUM”. Before this reform, the ranking was based on an average, established over a certain period of time. The new system proceeds by addition/subtraction on a total of points, according to the matches gained or lost. FIFA explains that the points added or subtracted are partly defined by the relative strength of the two opponents. The model therefore takes into account the logic that would like a higher ranked team to obtain better results against an opponent who occupies a lower position in the ranking. For more information, you can find the press release here.

As for men, the FIFA ranking exists for women’s national teams, here is the latest ranking dating from June 17, 2022:

  • Germany, 2010.39 pts
