Qatar Bans Alcohol in Indoor Stadiums for World Cup

It’s certainly their prerogative, but what a jerk move to decide this at the last minute.

Soccer fans reacted with a mix of anger and resignation to Qatar’s ban on alcohol inside World Cup stadiums.


Alcohol is prohibited inside stadiums during the 2022 World CupFIFA announced Friday. The last-minute U-turn came just two days before the tournament is set to begin.


The World Cup is the first to be held in a conservative Muslim country with strict controls on alcohol, the consumption of which is banned in public, and the reversal has raised questions among some supporters about the host country’s ability to deliver on promises to fans.
