By last night we had seen all 32 teams at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The 16 games were played across the 8 stadia, with each used twice.
Two of the eight (Lusail Stadium and Stadium 974) saw an increase in attendance from Game 1 to Game 2. For Lusail it was an extra 91 fans while Stadium 974 had 3,293 more fans at Portugal vs Ghana, when compared to Mexico vs Poland.
However, the remaining six venues have witnessed a drop in attendance demand from Game 1 to Game 2. I wonder why? The data is presented below.
