Beer will be Served At the Stadium and Fan Zones During FIFA World Cup In Qatar Despite Laws Restricting Sale of Alcohol

Organizers of the FIFA World Cup have agreed to a policy with local officials in Qatar to serve beer at stadiums and fan zones despite laws restricting the sale of alcohol in the majority-Muslim nation.

According to the Associated Press, fans will be allowed to purchase beer within the stadium compound before and after games, as well as during the official FIFA Fan Festival at night.Budweiser, the exclusive beer brand of the World Cup, will be sold to fans within the stadium perimeter prior to kickoff of games, after the final whistle, and during the Fan Festival from 6:30 at night onwards.

Inside the stadium bowl and during the games themselves, ticket holders will only have access to Budweiser Zero, the brand’s non-alcoholic variation.

The beer policy comes as Qatar has had to relax its heavy regulation of alcohol sales, which are based on traditional Islamic law, for the World Cup.
