Contests which might be designed to be consumed for leisure by non-contestants are a fixture of financial, cultural and political life. On this paper, we study whether or not people favor to eat contests which have extra unsure outcomes. We glance to skilled sports activities and exploit injury-induced adjustments to groups’ lineups to estimate the impact of consequence uncertainty on spectator demand for contests. Drawing on a number of seasons of game-level knowledge from the Australian Soccer League, we discover that recreation consequence uncertainty has a big impact: a one standard-deviation improve within the consequence uncertainty of a recreation causes, on common, an 11.2% improve in attendance. We present that this impact is bigger: 1) when there’s extra at stake on the end result of the competition; and, 2) for groups which have bigger, more-dispersed fan bases. Our outcomes prolong analysis on contest design and knowledge preferences by suggesting that spectators are strongly drawn to evenly-balanced contests, habits in keeping with folks deriving leisure utility from suspense and the decision of uncertainty.
