Premier League Ranked Best in the World by IFFHS

header3 logo Premier League Ranked Best in the World by IFFHS

Every year the IFFHS releases its ranking list of the top football leagues in the world. The Barclays Premier League won the honor for 2008, thanks largely to the fantastic performances in the Champions League from English clubs. This ranking was released in April, but on the eve of the Premier League season, I figured this would be a good time to revisit the list from last year.

Here are the IFFHS Top 15 worldwide domestic leagues:

1-     England

2-     Italy

3-     Argentina

4-     Spain

5-     Brazil

6-     Germany

7-     France

8-     Mexico

9-     Portugal

10- Ukraine

11- Turkey

12- Greece

13- Holland

14- Chile

15- Peru

Of interest to our readers in North America, the US/Canadian top flight, Major League Soccer was ranked the 77th best league in the world by the IFFHS.
