Testing the uncertainty outcome hypothesis using data from second tier soccer in Ireland


  • Farai Jena
  • Barry Reilly


This study estimates a demand relationship for second tier soccer in Ireland to test the uncertainty outcome hypothesis (UOH). Using data from three recent playing seasons, the UOH is found to be upheld. In addition, well-determined effects for fixture quality, recent team performance and travel distance between the competing teams’ stadia are also obtained.
