During the last World Cup in Brazil, fans were allowed to drink in their stadiums, but Qatar has changed its tune in preparation for the 2022 tournament. The country, a conservative Muslim nation, will be hosting the tournament in winter, with daytime temperatures frequently hovering around 30C. This makes it difficult for fans to avoid getting drunk.
The country has a strict interpretation of Islam that prohibits drinking in public. However, alcohol is permitted in some hotels, so visitors may be able to purchase a drink at the end of their stay. Alcohol will also be permitted in stadiums, though it will only be available at specified times.
FIFA is not a fan of alcohol, but the organisation has taken steps to ensure fans are not abused. Among these measures are fines for anti-social behavior and a strict interpretation of the country’s alcohol laws. The organization has also been pushing Russia to reform its laws, which allow for alcohol sales inside stadiums.
Alcohol has been a hot topic in Qatar since the country won the right to host the tournament. Fifa has lobbied the country to change its laws, but Doha has refused. Qatar is a conservative Arab Gulf nation that follows a strict interpretation of Islam known as Wahhabism. The strict laws are intended to keep fans from getting drunk and rowdy. The country’s authorities have not responded to requests for comment.
The World Cup is an international event, and fans from all over the world will be attending. It is also one of the largest sporting events in the world, with more than 80,000 fans descending on Doha for the finals. It is therefore not surprising that alcohol is a concern for the tournament’s organizers.
The World Cup is expected to generate a substantial amount of money, with the government set to receive over $5 billion. But the tournament is also a cultural event, and it is important for visitors to respect local customs. For instance, beer will be permitted in designated areas outside stadiums, but it will not be sold on the street.
The World Cup has been a big draw for fans from Asia and South Asia, but Qatar is a conservative Muslim nation. Alcohol sales will be limited, but some bars will offer drinks for sale.
In addition to alcohol, the World Cup also features the Pearl Lounge box. This box, which is a luxury hotel room, features a sommelier, a Champagne selection, and some of the world’s best wines. It costs nearly PS20,000 to book the box for one match.
Budweiser has been the official beer of the World Cup since 1986, and its parent company, AB InBev, has a contract with FIFA for tens of millions of dollars to distribute Budweiser at all matches. It is also the official sponsor of the Fifa Fan Festival, which will take place in Doha during the tournament.
During the 2022 World Cup, alcohol will be permitted in designated areas outside stadiums, including clubs. Alcohol will also be permitted in hospitality boxes, allowing fans to purchase drinks at specified times.
