World Cup 2022: Beer sales banned at World Cup stadiums in Qatar

Eight World Cup stadiums in Qatar will not sell alcohol as a result of Fifa changing its rules two days prior to the commencement of the competition.

Despite the fact that alcohol sales are legally prohibited in the Muslim nation, it was planned to be served “in select places within stadiums.”

Alcohol will still be available for purchase in the corporate sections of the stadiums during the competition.

“Following discussions between host country authorities and Fifa, a decision has been made to focus the sale of alcoholic beverages on the Fifa fan festival, other fan destinations, and licensed venues, eliminating sales points of beer from Qatar’s Fifa World Cup 2022 stadium perimeters,” read a statement from the governing body of international football.
