An examination of the NCAA Men's Soccer College Cup
The purpose of this study was to examine the NCAA Men's Soccer Championship, using data from the years of 1998 through 2004. A successful College Cup was defined as measured using the categories of attendance, profit/loss, and television ratings. Within the analysis, three variables, weather conditions, proximity of the participating teams, and stadium capacity were used to determine the relationship they may or may not have had on the success of a College Cup as it was defined. No significant findings presented themselves following the analysis, which indicated that no conclusions could be drawn involving the ability of the variables to predict the success of the College Cup. However, the limited range of data indicated hope that future, more expansive studies, could still uncover significant findings.
