Every player in the platform receives a rating for their current level and for potential level.
- The current rating is defined as the level a player currently has.
- The potential rating aligns with the peak level a player is expected to achieve in the future.
We use a scale from 4.0 to 10.0. The best players in the world have a rating close to 10.0. Players with a rating between 4.0 and 4.9 are deemed not good enough (yet) for professional football.
The player ratings are based on the subjective evaluation of our expert video scouts. They know the players in great detail and can assign the best estimation of their levels.
That doesn't mean the scouts assign those ratings completely random, as the scouts use a rating reference as a starting point.
You can find this team rating reference list below. It is an indication of the average current level of top players, starting players, rotation players and squad players in every team.
We currently added 30 leagues to the list. We will soon present an updated version by adding about 20 additional leagues.

Using the ratings
Let's give a quick example. Imagine FC Utrecht is looking for a top player for their team. That implies they should be looking for a player with a rating for current level close to 7.7. This same player could be a rotation player at Borussia Mönchengladbach, with the same 7.7 as an average score.
In other words, the team rating reference list is not only used as a starting point for our scouts. It also provides clubs with a clear reference for which level do should be aiming for. Simply download the reference list, find your team (use CTRL+F) and get started!
