The second tier has gone much the same way as the first with attendances now counted in hundreds. In 2015-16 the highest crowd was 4,300 with one gate of 90 the lowest. And while details are nowhere near as complete for this tier as they are for the first, figures clearly show that for many years average attendances were as good or better than current top flight ones. While there were always quite a few sub-500 crowds this division could, at times, draw crowds approaching 20,000 for big matches. Today, the occupancy rate is down to 15.89%. Format changes are more complicated than the top level, as this division has also been regionalised on several occasions with the number of regions varying between two and four. As with all such cases the averages here represent all matches in the division irrespective of number of clubs or regions.
Nemzeti Bajnokság III is currently in three regions and contains what are – by Hungarian standards – several famous names from years gone by. Reserves also operate at this level. Attendance figures appear only sporadically but they seem to have followed the same familiar downward spiral. In 1966 the average was 1,329 with 5,000 the highest for the season though with many crowds in the 100-500 range. By 1999 the average was down to 579 with no gates higher than 2,000. In 2015-16 the average dropped to 339 though the high was a pretty incredible 10,125 between Csepel and Ferencváros II. There were no second tier crowds bigger than that and only two in the top flight. On the other hand there were fifteen sub-100 gates with 42 the very rock bottom.
