Kick off time

Does kick off at 7:45pm make any difference to a 3pm kick off? Does seem so. Without making any analysis of the team, weather, form then there is a reduction in the the numbers through the turnstiles on evening kick offs. 4,548 average at home for 3pm kick offs, as opposed to 3980 for a 7:45pm kick off. For away games, then an average of 7,306 is achieved for 3pm kick offs and 4,591 for 7:45pm kick offs.
