All the matches organized in the UEFA competitions held between the beginning of May 2010 and 30th April 2011 will be accounted for in the final standings.

The current rating is compiled according to several criteria, including respect for opponents and referees, as well as the behaviour of officials and spectators, and covers all matches played between 1st May and 31st December 2010.

All the matches organized in the UEFA competitions held between the beginning of May 2010 and 30th April 2011 will be accounted for in the final standings. The first three countries will then get one seat each in the first qualifying round of the 2011-2012 edition of the Champions League.

The teams to occupy the first three places will register in the first qualifying round of the 2011-2012 edition of the Champions League, which will determine which team will finish first in the first Fair Play internal rankings.

If the team is already qualified in the European competitions, then the team standing second will take its place, and so on. The fairness of the system also means it is possible a relegated team from the second division can qualify for the Champions League.
