We look at the two professional leagues in the Netherlands, and examine whether the same covariates determine attendance at both levels. We conclude that team fixed effects (local drawing potential) are important, and so are form of the home and away team. Weather conditions do matter for attendance of games in the lower league, but not for the attendance of games in the highest league.
