News Alcohol Sales Banned At Stadiums In FIFA World Cup 2022

Kathmandu (GoalNepal) - Qatar has outlawed the selling of alcohol around stadiums throughout the upcoming FIFA World Cup. FIFA announced on Friday that the organizers had prohibited the selling of alcohol near the stadium.

FIFA and the organizers debated whether or not to sell beer around the stadium during the tournament.

Despite the fact that alcohol is legally prohibited in Qatar, it was planned to be provided in specially designated areas within stadiums. However, those in corporate zones of tournament venues will be able to purchase alcohol.

FIFA statement reads: "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, removing sales points of beer from Qatar's Fifa World Cup 2022 stadium perimeters. There is no impact to the sale of Bud Zero which will remain available at all Qatar's World Cup stadiums. Host country authorities and Fifa will continue to ensure that the stadiums and surrounding areas provide an enjoyable, respectful and pleasant experience for all fans. The tournament organisers appreciate AB InBev's understanding and continuous support to our joint commitment to cater for everyone during the Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022."

The World Cup begins on Sunday, with Qatar taking on Ecuador. Budweiser, one of FIFA's sponsors, had got exclusive rights to sell beer throughout the World Cup.
