Rankings

The UFWC’s all-time ranking system awards one point for every title match victory. Teams are ranked numerically by matches won, then alphabetically. Scotland top the ranking table, having won more UFWC matches than any other nation. England are second, with the two British nations ahead of their opposition due to their dominance of the early game. For notes click here.
