It is extremely difficult for football fans at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar to buy alcohol. The situation in a conversation with Lenta.ru was described by the Russian Ainur, who works at one of the World Cup stadiums. He said that only non-alcoholic drinks are sold during matches.

“There is no alcoholic beer at the stadium, only non-alcoholic. The stadium is definitely not,” he explained.

But even outside the stadium, finding alcohol in this Arab country is problematic, Ainur explained.

“You can buy only if in the clubs at the hotel, but not the fact that they sell takeaway. And so there is one store where they sell only with special permission, ”said the interlocutor of Lenta.ru.

On November 18, the International Football Federation (FIFA) announced a ban on the sale of beer in stadiums that will host matches of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. This is due to the laws of the country, according to which the import and drinking of alcoholic beverages in public places is prohibited. FIFA’s decision was taken following consultations with local authorities. “The sale of alcoholic beverages will be concentrated in the fan zones, other places where fans gather, as well as licensed venues,” the statement said.

Earlier, Budweiser announced that all unsold beer will go to the winning country of the World Cup.
