Outcome Uncertainty and the Demand for Football: An Analysis of Match Attendances in the English Football League
This paper examines the predictive outcome, for match attendance, of a new measure of outcome uncertainty. This is the probability of home success as measured by posted fixed betting odds. The analysis is based on cross-section data and involves a sing le-equation model. The inclusion and measurement of variables is expl ained. The significant results involve the identification of a home w in as being of importance in determining match attendance, as well as the distance factor between clubs for the third and fourth divisions .
