Beer sales are prohibited in World Cup venues in Qatar, according to FIFA.

Just two days before the start of the international soccer event, the sale of beer and other alcoholic beverages was outlawed at the stadiums hosting the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

In the eight stadiums throughout the 64 games, non-alcoholic beer will still be available to fans. The tournament's owner, FIFA, officially endorsed the choice.

A decision has been made to concentrate the sale of alcoholic beverages on the FIFA Fan Festival, other fan destinations, and licenced venues, eliminating beer sales points

from Qatar's FIFA World Cup 2022 stadium perimeters, according to a statement from FIFA on Friday.

The sale of Bud Zero, which will continue to be offered at all of Qatar's World Cup venues, is unaffected.

According to the Associated Press, champagne, wine, whiskey, and other alcoholic beverages will still be provided in the stadiums' luxurious hospitality sections.

Beer is often the sole alcoholic beverage offered to normal ticket holders outside of those zones. The stadiums and their surroundings will continue to give all supporters

with a pleasurable, respectful, and pleasant experience, according to FIFA and the authorities of the host nation.
