* ACL/AL Qualification in Divisions (for eligible teams only):

Eligibility Requirements:
- No restrictions to SG based teams
- In cases where multiple eligible non-SG based teams qualify for ACL/AL, only the higher ranked team (per country for that category) will be selected for qualification

Pro League Champion is guaranteed to qualify. Next best placed teams in Pro League will qualify for as many ACL slots available. Should a team in Pro League be qualified for ACL but not eligible, the slot will be given to the next best team.

Cup winner will automatically qualify for AL slot. Should the Cup winner be qualified for ACL (via league) or not eligible, the slot will be given to the next best ranking team in the Cup accordingly.

[NOTE] Rules to qualify for ACL/AL via SGFIFAVP may differ every season due to league restructure, ACL/AL qualification rules from other domestic leagues, and slots allocation. ACL/AL availability for the season is subjected to ACL admin's notice. Should there be no ACL/AL for the season, the league rankings will not be used for next ACL/AL
