Budweiser scoffed at Friday’s announcement that it would ban alcohol from stadiums. He tweeted, ‘Wow, this is unbearable…’ but later deleted the post. According to all accounts, the beer came from breweries in London, Lancashire and Wales and was transported 8,000 miles to Qatar.
The sale of beer in stadiums was banned following pressure from the Qatari royal family. With this, strong criticism is emerging against Qatar and FIFA. Football fans and sponsors came out against him. Many fans who bought tickets say they want their money back and will not be coming to watch the World Cup.
Tourists can only buy or drink alcohol in licensed hotels or restaurants. According to the concessions for the World Cup, fans can buy beer from special ‘fan zones’.
