World Cup 2022: the sale of beer authorized three hours before the matches

According Reuters, the sale of beers ticket holders will be allowed around the stadiums three hours before and one hour after matches at the World Cup in Qatar (20 November-18 December).

But not in the stadiums, not during the matches and only from Budweiser, the competition’s major sponsor, which will also be able to sell its cans in the main FIFA fan zone in the center of Doha (around 40,000 people) every days from 6:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. In addition, the FIFA site also promises “beers, champagne, wines and spirits” in VIP areas.

Qatar strictly regulates the sale and consumption of alcohol, which is normally only permitted in licensed bars and restaurants, especially in international hotels.

If you bring alcohol bottles in your luggage (after a duty free purchase before boarding, for example), they will be confiscated by the airport police after you land in Doha. Consumption and drunkenness in public are also offenses punishable by local law.
