The organizers of the World Cup in Qatar set guidelines for when and where beer can be sold

The organizers of the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar have set the beer policy for fans.

Qatar is a Muslim country that, for religious reasons, restricts the sale and consumption of alcohol, which is forbidden in Islam.

“We are working closely with FIFA, who manage relations with the Qatari authorities, to ensure our activations for the tournament are conducted respectfully and in accordance with local rules and regulations,” said AB InBev, brewer of the World Cup beer sponsor Budweiser Reuters.

Beer sales only take place before and after the games; Only non-alcoholic beverages will be available to fans during matches.

“There will be beer when the gates open, three hours before kick-off. Anyone who wants to drink a beer will be able to. And then when they leave the stadium an hour after the final whistle.”

While the beer will be available in the eight stadium areas for the competition, it will not be sold at concession stands in the hall.

Budweiser will also be able to “serve beer in part of the main FIFA fan zone in central Doha [Qatar’s capital] from 6:30 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. every day of the 29-day tournament, which begins on November 20,” according to Reuters.

MATCH Hospitality also sells corporate and premium tickets that provide access to wine, champagne and spirits.

Jamie Byrom, Executive Chairman of MATCH Hospitality, told the Associated Press that “The entire FIFA World Cup bid process is designed to deliver the kind of World Cup experience that all fans around the world expect and look forward to to be happy. ”
