World Cup 2022: Fans will not be allowed to buy alcohol around stadiums during Qatar tournament

Fans will not be allowed to buy alcohol around World Cup stadiums.

A FIFA statement said: “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.”

World Cup organisers had previously said Budweiser would be available for sale at stadium perimeters from three hours before kick-off and until one hour after final whistle.

Budweiser is an official FIFA partner and has a contract reported to be worth £63m.
