The CONIFA World Rankings

There’s new teams at the top!

Northern Cyprus and FA Sapmi takes the top spot

Check out the rankings in full at the bottom of this article!

The CONIFA rankings are decided by a number of elements, and all matches reported in to CONIFA count towards the ranking. Matches against CONIFA opposition counts more than matches against non-CONIFA members, and tournaments count more than friendlies. If you want to know the finer details of how the ranking is made up, find out here; but for now, congratulations to Northern Cyprus and FA Sapmi on their No1 spot!
