Abstract: The article’s research problem is to explain what relationships are between the main variables that determine the percentage of occupancy in stadiums in 2018. Starting from an empirical problem limited to the Brazilian Championship — low public attendance at the soccer stadiums in the main national championship — we intend to investigate the variables via quantitative methodology that indicate the occupation in arenas, presenting the reasons for the audience variation in the stands at “Brasileirão 2018”. It stands out as a positive result from which it was possible to know the percentage of 66% of the public that attended the championship according to the parameters proposed in this study.

Key words: soccer; stadium occupancy; 2018 Brazilian championship; statistics
