Qatar Agree to Serve Beer/alcohol at World Cup Matches.

In accordance with a finalized regulation, beer will now be served alongside alcoholic drinks to soccer fans in stadiums and fan zones in the Muslim-majority nation of Qatar during the World Cup.

Before and after games, and only during the official “Fan Festival” in the evenings, supporters will be able to purchase Budweiser beer with alcohol inside the eight stadium complexes, according to FIFA. Concession stalls on the concourse will not be authorized. That is taking place at a park in the heart of Doha.

Since February 2021, game tickets for Qatari stadiums that promise access to champagne, wine, liquor, and beer for hospitality clients have been available for purchase as part of corporate packages that provide “luxury beverages.”

Just 11 weeks before the first match, the beer ban that would effect the majority of spectators was revealed, and it finally satisfies a demand that has existed since Qatar launched its 12-year-old bid to host the first World Cup in the Middle East.

Since 1986, Budweiser has been the only World Cup beer brand. In 2011, after Qatar was selected as the host nation, parent company AB InBev extended the agreement with FIFA through 2022.

Budweiser with alcohol will be served “inside the stadium boundary prior to kickoff and after the final whistle,” FIFA confirmed.

Although it is exclusively provided in hotels, restaurants, and bars with a license, alcohol is more readily available in Qatar than in some other Middle Eastern countries. It is forbidden to take it somewhere else.

Nevertheless, Qatar had to slacken its prohibition on alcohol for the 29-day competition beginning on November 20. More than 1 million people are anticipated to visit the tiny Emirate, including fans from 31 other countries.
