SINCE 2010 !

LA LIGA in Spain is one time more the Strongest National League in the World in 2017. Since 2010, the Spanish Liga dominates the ranking established by the IFFHS.

In 1991, the IFFHS has created this ranking, considering that the performance level of a league depends of the results from the best teams of this country (the five best teams are considered ) in national and international competitions. A point system is so applicated for each league and is recognized as an objective indicator of the league level.

Since the beginning of this ranking in 1991, Spain (Primera Division – La Liga) has won 12 times, Italy (Serie A) 10 times, England (Premier League) 4 times and Germany (Bundesliga) 1 time.

In 2017, LA LIGA has won with a very little advance before the PREMIER LEAGUE of England, who took again the second place after 4 difficult years.

At the World’s third place, the SERIE A of Brazil (place 7 in 2016) is the best league in South America before the PRIMERA A of Colombia and the PRIMERA DIVISION of Argentina.

The SERIE A of Italy (place 8 in 2016) made a great progression to take the 4th place before the LIGUE 1 of France, who lost two places. The BUNDESLIGA of Germany felt to rank 8 in the World, his worst ranking since 1991.

The DIVISION PROFESIONAL of Paraguay (17 in 2016) recovered the 9th place after 5 years and the PREMIER LEAGUE of Russia won 10 places since last year to join the Top 10.

In CONCACAF, la LIGA MX of Mexico is again the best of the Continent (in the World Top 20 since 2000). The MLS of USA returned at the second place in the continent after 5 years before Costa Rica, second last year.

In Asia (AFC), the K LEAGUE CLASSIC of Korea Republic leads the ranking of the continent since 7 years, just before the PRO LEAGUE of Saudi Arabia, second since 2013 and the J1 LEAGUE of Japan, who won 9 places in the ranking (N°40 in 2016).

In Africa (CAF), the LIGUE 1 of Tunisia keeps his leadership since 2013 before the PREMIER LEAGUE of Egypt, second also since five years and the PREMIER LEAGUE of Soudan, who has his best ranking since 5 years.

In Oceania (OFC), the LIGUE 1 of Tahiti (111 in the World Ranking) is for the first time the best of the Continent before the PREMIERSHIP of New Zealand (118) and the SUPER LIGUE of New Caledonia (126).
