Greece took 12th place in the chart of UEFA for the 2009 – 2010 season. In spite of the drop out of Olympiakos from the Top 16 of the Champions league and the drop out of Panathinaikos from the European league the Greek teams managed to gather a total of 7 900 points, which is a record for the pat 8 years. (The last record of Greece was for the season 2001 – 2002 when the football teams managed to gather a total of 11 250 points).

The greatest number of points managed to gather the team of Olympiacos. Out of the 12 games it played in the Champions league it scored 7 victories, 1 draw and 4 losses which brought it a total of 17 500 points. Following it qualified the team of Panathinaikos with 4 games played in the Champions league and 10 games in the European league. In the first one it scored 1 victory and 3 losses and in the second 6 victories and 4 losses (a total of 7 victories v.s. 7 losses). The greens gathered a total of 13 580 points.

The two biggest teams of Greece were followed this season in Europe by three other Greek teams – AEK, PAOK and Larissa. The team of AEK gathered 4580 points with 2 victories, 1 draw and 5 losses. PAOK brought to Greece 3080 points with 1 victory, 2 draws and 1 loss and Larissa is with 2080 points with 1 draw and 1 loss.

Like this with the 29 899 points it gathered for the past 5 years Greece took 12th place in the chart of UEFA and this automatically secures the participation of the Champion of Greece in the Champions league not only for the 2010 – 11 season, but also for the 2011 – 12 season. This fact compensates to a certain extent the disappointment of the Greek football players and football fans from the drop out of the teams from the following stages of the European and the Champions leagues in this season.

Here is how the chart of UEFA looks like: The first place is taken by England with 79 428 points, second place is for Spain with 77 471 points, the third for Italy with 62 910 points, fourth place is for Germany with 61 874 points, fifth for France with 52 906 points, sixth place for Russia with 43 791 points, seventh for Ukraine with 39 550 points, eight for Romania with 39 491 points, ninth is Portugal with 37 962 points, tenth is for Netherlands with 36 546 points, eleventh is Turkey with 34 450 points, twelfth is Greece with 29 899 points, thirteenth is Switzerland with 28 375 points and fourteenth is Belgium with 27 900 points.
