Howdy Everybody. That is, fellow survivors of that damned Covid pandemic. Putting lockdowns, 12-day home quarantine isolation, multiple vaccines, travel restrictions and foul tasting anti-virals etc. behind us/me it is time to remind the International Footy World what the World Rankings pre-Covid looked like.

The upcoming Trans-Atlantic Cup signals a long-awaited resumption of International Footy competition so we are republishing the WFN Rankings as of post 2022 European Championships. This the last competition published on WFN.

A reminder for everyone: P Provisional Nation has not played the required 8 (eight) international matches to become fully Ranked. D Dormant Nation has not played an international match in 5 or more Years. Retains rating points until plays another eligible match.

The initial rules concerning nations becoming dormant and consequently being removed from the ranking were if a nation exceeded 8 years without playing an eligible International then the fell off the Ranking Scheme. Therefore, Tonga and Finland would have been removed from the ranks in 2023. However, due to the pandemic bringing International Matches to a grinding halt for well over two years I have unilaterally extended the cut off time to ten years. I don’t think I will get any arguments on that decision.
